July 29 (Reuters) - Newmont Mining Corp reported a marginal rise in second-quarter earnings on Tuesday due to an increase in gold and copper production during the quarter.

The biggest U.S.-based gold miner said adjusted net income rose to $101 million, or 20 cents per share, in the quarter, from a loss of $90 million, or 18 cents per share, in the same period a year ago.
