TORONTO, Sept 25 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index gained slightly on Thursday on strong oils, while the United States appeared close to a final agreement on its financial bailout plan, but gains were dampened by weak gold producers.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 14.05 points, or 0.11 percent, at 12,527.41. (Reporting by Leah Schnurr; editing by Rob Wilson)
