TORONTO Feb 23 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index turned slightly higher on Thursday morning as rising bullion prices lifted gold miners and encouraging U.S. jobs data offset forecasts showing the euro zone economy will shrink this year.

At 10:10 a.m. (1510 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 2.4 points at 12,703.66, a five-month high.
