TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index climbed on Thursday as gold mining stocks, which jumped with bullion prices, offset a decline in Royal Bank of Canada (RY.TO: Quote) after the lender reported quarterly results.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 13.94 points, or 0.11 percent, at 12,746.55. Five of the 10 main sectors on the index were higher.
