Feb 5 (Reuters) - Canadian uranium producer Cameco Corp reported a quarterly loss, hurt by a higher impairment charge and weakness in the Canadian dollar.

Excluding items, the company earned 38 Canadian cents per share.

Revenue rose 9.7 percent to C$975 million. ($1 = C$1.39) (Reporting by Manish Parashar in Bengaluru; Editing by Kirti Pandey)
