Perth Mint's Oct gold sales down about 4 pct on month, silver up 43 pct

    Nov 1 (Reuters) - The Perth Mint's sales of gold products
fell 3.87 percent in October from a month earlier, while silver
sales rose about 43 percent, the mint said in a blog post on its
website on Wednesday.
    Sales of gold coins and minted bars dropped to 44,618 ounces
in October from 46,415 ounces a month ago, the mint said.
    Silver sales during the month, meanwhile, jumped to 999,425
ounces from 697,849 ounces in September.
    The Perth Mint refines more than 90 percent of newly-mined
gold in Australia, the world's No. 2 gold producer after China. 
    Spot gold prices recorded their second consecutive
monthly decline in October, pressured by a strong U.S. dollar.
