July 29 (Reuters) - Centerra Gold Inc swung to a loss in the second quarter, results showed on Tuesday, on the back of a lower gold price, higher share-based compensation and a charge for inventory at its Kumtor mine in Kyrgyzstan.

The Toronto-based gold company reported a net loss of $31.7 million, or 13 cents a share, in the three months to the end of June. That compared with earnings of $1.6 million, or 1 cent, a year earlier. (Reporting by Nicole Mordant in Vancouver; Editing by David Gregorio)
