Oct 31 (Reuters) - Newmont Mining Corp reported a 7 percent rise in third-quarter profit on Thursday, benefitting from the sale of its investment in Canadian Oil Sands Ltd and higher output at its Australian and Nevada operations.

Net income rose to $429 million, or 86 cents a share, from $400 million, or 81 cents, in the same period a year earlier ago.
