July 22 (Reuters) - Newmont Mining Corp reported higher second-quarter adjusted earnings on Wednesday as lower oil prices and favorable exchange rates offset the impact of weaker metal prices.

Newmont, the world's No. 2 gold producer by ounces mined, said adjusted net earnings rose to $131 million, or 26 cents a share, in the quarter to end-June from $101 million, or 20 cents a share, in the same period a year ago. (Reporting by Nicole Mordant in Vancouver; Editing by Diane Craft)
