TORONTO, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
climbed on Wednesday to its highest in more than two years, led
by a jump in gold producers, after the U.S. Federal Reserve
surprised markets by saying it would keep its monetary stimulus
measures in place for now.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 97.29 points, or 0.76 percent,
at 12,931.40. Five of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
