TORONTO, March 13 (Reuters) - Toronto's key stock index bounced off an earlier low and returned to higher territory by mid afternoon on Friday as bank issues recouped losses and gold-mining shares rallied on higher bullion.

At 2:35 p.m. (1835 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 2.96 points at 8,285.23 after falling as much as 1 percent earlier. Four of the TSX's 10 sectors were higher. (Reporting by Frank Pingue)
