TORONTO Jan 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Tuesday as a selloff in copper prices sent shares of First Quantum Minerals Ltd and Teck Resources Ltd tumbling, while shares of gold-mining companies eased after a recent price runup.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 77.85 points, or 0.55 percent, at 14,187.16. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index were higher. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Peter Galloway)
