TORONTO, April 12 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
fell more than 1 percent on Friday, as weak U.S. economic data
dulled hopes for Canada's export sector, while a sharp drop in
gold prices pulled the materials sector to its lowest level in
nearly four years.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 ended the session down 143.78 points, or 1.15 percent,
at 12,337.59.
