CANADA STOCKS-TSX at 2-1/2-year high as gold-mining shares jump

TORONTO, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose
on Friday to its highest in 2-1/2 years as strong bullion prices
helped push up gold-mining shares such as Barrick Gold Corp
 and Goldcorp Inc, offsetting a weak performance
by the industrial sector.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 56.63 points, or 0.41 percent,
at 13,888.21. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
