 TORONTO, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index reversed hard, shedding more than 1 percent on Thursday
morning, as gold-mining shares followed the price of gold
lower.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE dropped 126 points, or 1.03 percent, to 12,072.79.
Nine of the index's 10 main groups were lower, led by a near
2-percent decline in materials, home to gold miners.
