TORONTO, Aug 16 (Reuters) - Canada's benchmark equity index
closed at a three-month high on Thursday as mining shares
rallied on fresh stimulus hopes and after Barrick Gold 
said it is in talks to sell a majority stake in its African
unit.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 127.14 points, or 1.1 percent,
at 12,032.58. It last closed above 12,000 on May 3.
