 TORONTO, April 19 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
ended a three-day slide on Tuesday, as high commodity prices --
including record gold prices -- helped spur a rally among
miners, pulling the index from its lowest point in a month.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially ended up 34.50 points, or 0.25 percent,
at 13,736.83. Just four of its 10 main groups were higher, led
by a 1.39 percent rise in the mining-heavy materials sector.
