July 29 (Reuters) - Canadian miner Turquoise Hill Resources
Ltd reported a 33.5% jump in second-quarter profit on
Thursday, buoyed by a higher copper and gold output from the Oyu
Tolgoi mine in Mongolia.
Rio Tinto-controlled Turquoise Hill said income attributable
to the owners of the company was $96.9 million, or 48 cents per
share, for the three months ended June 30, compared with $72.6
million, or 36 cents per share, a year earlier.
