Shares in Datong Coal jump 10 percent on Q1 profit

BEIJING, April 29 (Reuters) - Shares in Datong Coal Industry Co Ltd jumped 10 percent in Shanghai, their biggest one-day gain in nine months, after the company reported a first-quarter profit.

Datong Coal posted on Monday a 1.04 billion yuan ($166.32 million) profit in the first quarter.

The company reported a net loss of 1.4 billion yuan last year, hit by sharp falls in thermal coal prices.
