Gold is a chemical element  with the atomic number  of 79 and chemical symbol of Au. Gold is one of the most unreactive elements, being a noble metal; so it is typically in a metal form of pure gold (nuggets, flakes, etc.).
In the United States of America , gold prices have gone up since the economic recession. That is why the Hoffman Group  went to Alaska , so they could mine the gold and make it rich, similar to what other have done.
Gold is described as a "dense lustrous yellow precious metal". 
"Gold is attractive in color and brightness, durable to the point of virtual indestructibility, highly malleable, and usually found in nature in a comparatively pure form. The history of gold is unequaled by that of any other metal because of its perceived value from earliest times."
