TORONTO Jan 31 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock edged higher on Tuesday, helped by gains for gold mining stocks as the price of gold benefited from nervous financial markets.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 12.72 points, or 0.08 percent, at 15,417.84, shortly after the open. Just two of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
