LIMA, July 26 (Reuters) - Peruvian precious metals miner Buenaventura on Tuesday reported $55.5 million in net profit in the second quarter, up from its $18.7 million loss in the same period a year ago.

The company said better gold and silver prices helped boost sales in the second quarter, even as its gold output slipped. (Reporting by Mitra Taj; Editing by Sandra Maler)
