Gold is a very beautiful and expensive resource. Can sometimes be found off the bodies of raiders, as well as those who pop out of random cryptosleep caskets in buildings around the map, but the primary source is by mining gold veins or drilling with deep drills. You can sell gold to certain traders to get a staggering amount of cash, or craft it into golden sculptures that are perhaps the most valuable items in the game. It can also be used to create extremely beautiful furniture and structures. Gold is also necessary to build the multi-analyzer and the ship computer core.
Gold art and furniture is the best way to get that coveted "Beautiful Environment" mood bonus for your colonists, though this may be wasteful unless you are swimming in cash already and don't need much extra.
