TORONTO, June 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index was up more than 2 percent early on Thursday afternoon as higher oil and gold prices gave a boost to the resource-heavy index, which has reclaimed all the losses it suffered early in the week.

At 1:12 p.m. (1712 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 203.02 points, or 2.01 percent, at 10,303.95. All 10 TSX sectors were higher, led by the energy sector's 3.35 percent rise. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
