Iamgold returns to quarterly profit as gold surges

TORONTO (Reuters) - Iamgold (IMG.TO) (IMG.TO) said on Friday it returned to a second-quarter profit helped by higher gold prices.

    The mid-tier Canadian gold producer earned $33.3 million, or 11 cents a share, in the quarter ended June 30, compared with a loss of $81.4 million, or 28 cents a share, in the same period last year, which included a big impairment charge at its Mupane mine in Botswana.
