TORONTO, Aug 3 (Reuters) - Miner New Gold NGD.TO said on Wednesday its second-quarter profit rose, largely due to a surge in the price of bullion and increased output.
Earnings excluding one-time items rose to $49.8 million, or 12 cents a share, up from a year-earlier profit of $14.1 million, or 4 cents a share.
Quarterly gold sales volumes rose 15 percent to 95,039 ounces, while revenues rose 52 percent to $171.6 million.
New Gold also reiterated that it expects to produce between 380,000 to 400,000 ounces of gold this year, at cash costs of $390 to $410 per ounce. (Reporting by Euan Rocha; editing by Peter Galloway)
