TORONTO, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark stock index edged higher on Tuesday as higher gold prices supported mining stocks, while news of an acquisition boosted shares of the country's largest pipeline company.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 17.29 points, or 0.12 percent, at 14,812.99. Only three of the index's 10 main industry groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
