TORONTO, April 13 (Reuters) - Toronto's key equity index moved into positive territory on Monday morning as a rally in gold-mining shares more than offset the drag lower oil prices had on the energy sector.

At 10:14 a.m. (1414 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 3.01 points at 9,190.13. Earlier, it had fallen as much as 72 points.

Moves in the index were expected to be volatile throughout the session as many investors were still away for an extended Easter holiday weekend. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
