* TSX down 14.36 points, or 0.1 percent, at 13,773.44

* Index on track for 0.5 percent gain on week

TORONTO, May 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index slipped on Friday, weighed by energy companies and base metal miners pulling back in line with retreating prices for oil and other commodities.

Gold miners cushioned the fall, however, as bullion shrugged off a stronger U.S. dollar to rise.

At 10:31 a.m. EDT (1432 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 14.36 points, or 0.1 percent, at 13,773.44.

First Quantum Minerals Ltd fell 3.7 percent to C$8.44 and Teck Resources Ltd lost 3.5 percent to C$12.04.   Continued...
