 (Figures in U.S. dollars, unless noted)
 NEW YORK, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Yamana Gold YRI.TO said on
Wednesday its profit rose sharply, as record gold prices in the
fourth-quarter helped boost results.
 Net income in the quarter rose to $160.4 million, or 22
cents a share, compared with a year-ago profit of $36.2
million, or 5 cents a share.
 Excluding one-time items, earnings were $173.3 million, or
23 cents a share.
 Quarterly revenue rose more than 34 percent to $535
million.
 The Canadian miner, which has assets spread across Chile,
Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, said production in the quarter
was 286,682 gold equivalent ounces, down from 289,456 ounces, a
year earlier.
 The mid-tier gold miner is in the process of developing the
Mercedes gold-silver project in Mexico, which is due to start
production in 2012. It is also developing the Pilar gold
project in Brazil that is expected to come online in 2013.
