TORONTO, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
briefly turned positive on Tuesday, helped by Barrick Gold and
Goldcorp, which rose on news their joint-venture Pueblo Viejo
gold mine achieved commercial production. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 0.41 of a point to 12,603.50 before easing back
into negative territory. Five of the index's 10 main groups were
positive, while two of the index heavy-weights, the financial
and energy sectors, were among the decliners.
