CORRECTED-Australia shares headed for stronger start; NZ flat

 (Removes reference to minutes of the RBA September policy
meeting in the first paragraph)
    Sept 7 (Reuters) - Australian shares were headed for a
stronger start on Tuesday as  resource-related stocks were
likely to gain from soaring metal prices on political
uncertainty in Guinea, with investors on the sidelines ahead of
the central bank's September policy meeting.
    The local share price index futures          rose 0.2%, a
6.5-point premium to the underlying S&P/ASX 200 index        
close. The benchmark ended flat at 7,528.50 points on Monday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         was largely
unchanged, down 0.03% to 13,296.68 points in early trade.
