Oct 23 (Reuters) - Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd reported a 56 percent decline in third-quarter profit on Wednesday due to lower realized metal prices as well as a maintenance shutdown at its Kittila mine in Finland.

The gold miner's net income was $47.3 million, or 27 cents a share, compared with $106.3 million, or 62 cents a share, in the year-ago period.
