Perth Mint's August gold sales slip on month, silver sales lowest in a year

    Sept 4 (Reuters) - The Perth Mint's sales of gold products
slipped 2.3 percent in August from a month earlier, while silver
sales fell to the lowest in a year, the mint said in a blog post
on its website on Monday.  
    Sales of gold coins and minted bars decreased to 23,130
ounces in August from 23,675 ounces a month ago, the mint said. 
    Silver sales during the month dropped to the lowest level
since last August at 392,091 ounces, down 66.4 percent from
July, according to the blog post. 
    The Perth Mint refines more than 90 percent of newly mined
gold in Australia, the world's No. 2 gold producer after China.
    Gold prices climbed 1 percent to their highest in almost a
year on Monday after North Korea's latest and most powerful
nuclear test drove investors towards safe-haven assets.
