Aug 14 (Reuters) - Canada's Timmins Gold Corp said its quarterly profit rose 6 percent on higher production from its Mexico mine.

The net profit rose to $6.2 million, or 4 cents per share, in the second quarter from $5.8 million, or 4 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose about 41 percent to $38.2 million.

Production rose 39 percent to 23,203 ounces of gold.

Gold prices rose 7 percent to average $1,611 per ounce during the second quarter from the year-ago period.

The company still expects to produce 100,000 ounces of gold this year from its San Francisco gold mine in Sonora, Mexico.
