Denison Mines announces Q2 profit
The Canadian uranium miner said the swing to profit in the quarter was helped by a fall in certain expenses

Revenue more than doubled to $27.2 million. Uranium sales also rose more than twice, to $19 million.
Analysts on average were expecting a loss of 2 cents a share, before special items, on revenue of $34.3 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
The company said it expects 2010 capital expenditures of $18.4 million and sees mining revenue for the year to be $104.7 million.
Denison's mineral property exploration expenses were $1.8 million, down from $2.5 million a year ago, while its general and administrative expenses fell to $2.8 million from $3.5 million, a year earlier.
