TORONTO, June 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index turned negative on Thursday morning as weak oil and base metals prices pushed some resource issues lower.

At 10:28 a.m. (1428 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 0.93 of a point at 11,920.12.

The market opened higher, aided by strength in gold miners and market optimism spurred by strong demand for Spanish bonds, which calmed jitters over euro zone debt troubles. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
