TORONTO, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Eldorado Gold (ELD.TO) said on Thursday its third-quarter profit rose nearly 50 percent, on the back of increased gold production and a surge in the price of bullion.

The company, which operates gold mines in China and Turkey, said it produced a record 179,195 ounces of gold in the quarter. (Reporting by Euan Rocha)
