Australia shares set to open higher lifted by miners

    Sept 25 (Reuters) - Australian shares are likely to open
marginally higher on Friday, with mining stocks seen boosting
the benchmark as iron ore prices rose, while a fall in
infections in Victoria improved hopes that restrictions will be
eased sooner than expected.
    The local share price index futures          inched 0.1%
higher, a 13.9-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200
index         close. The benchmark fell 0.8% on Thursday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         had risen
0.3% by 2228 GMT.
