Southern Copper second-quarter net profit drops 1.8%

LIMA (Reuters) - Southern Copper Corp SCCO.N said on Tuesday its second-quarter net profit fell 1.8% year-on-year to $402.4 million, due mainly to lower sales prices that offset a surge in production.

The company, a unit of Grupo Mexico GMEXICOB.MX, produced 256,352 tonnes of copper in the second quarter, up 16.5% from a year-ago period, the firm said in its earnings statement.
