(In U.S. dollars, unless noted)

    TORONTO, May 8 (Reuters) - Agnico-Eagle Mines (AEM.TO) said on Thursday its first-quarter profit rose 16.1 percent, as soaring gold prices more than made up for lower production.

    The Canadian gold producer earned $28.9 million, or 20 cents a share, up from $24.9 million, or 20 cents a share, in the year-before period. ($1=$1.02 Canadian) (Reporting by Cameron French; editing by Rob Wilson)
