(In U.S. dollars, unless noted)

OTTAWA, May 1 (Reuters) - Centerra Gold (CG.TO) said on Thursday that its first-quarter profit soared as results were lifted by higher gold prices and sales volumes, despite a dip in production.

The Canadian-based mid-tier gold producer said it earned $19.3 million, or 9 cents per share, in the quarter. This was up from a profit of $5.9 million, or 3 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. ($1=$1.01 Canadian) (Reporting by Susan Taylor; Editing by Scott Anderson)
