April 29 (Reuters) - Yamana Gold Inc fell to a net loss in the first quarter on the back of weaker gold, silver and copper prices, lower metal sales and higher sale costs.

The Canadian-based gold miner on Tuesday reported a net loss of $29.6 million, or 4 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with net earnings of $102.1 million, or 14 cents a share, a year earlier. (Reporting by Nicole Mordant in Vancouver; Editing by Steve Orlofsky)
