TORONTO, July 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market index hit its lowest level in more than four months on Friday as resource issues, particularly gold miners, stumbled heavily.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially ended down 100.89 points, or 0.89 percent, at 11,193.53.

Gold issues were reeling after bullion prices were hit hard on Thursday, when Canadian markets were closed. The index's materials sector, which includes golds, was down more than 3 percent. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
