You quote a source which also say; Roman Empire.. Understand why you searched for Gold.. I'll hint you, they call it chemistry today..
I'm sure gold is a great compound in metallurgy..
I find no interest in having a discussion with someone who can't think for himself
Big scientific sensation - archaeologists discovered near Pazardzhik (Bulgaria) gold made earlier in the Varna Necropolis. This means that gold beads found in the "City of Birds" near "Yunatsite" became the oldest gold in Europe. The discovery will change the reading frame of history in our lands. People lived in the city of the birds before 8000 years were carriers of a high culture and a well-developed civilization.

Im gonna try to explain something, there is a reason why we forged gold 8.000 years ago.. Humans didnt just mine gold for mining gold, there was no reason to mine gold 8kya...
Gold in its original form looks like someone took a s****

According to Zachariah Sitchen people mind gold to give t the anuanki who were actually aliens from another planet
Gold isn't now, nor was it ever, forged. Once the Egyptians and Romans began mining it, it was smelted. But forging is an entirely different process. Smelting is done to separate ores after ingots are mined. Forging is for shaping. Gold is an extremely soft metal and doesnt require forging to shape it.

Hot Metal Forging For Jewelers and Metalsmiths
Copper, Silver, brass and gold can be successfully forged while working the metal red hot. Hot forged metals will forge out very quickly and do not need to be repeatedly annealed. Hot forging allows the metalsmith to forge out large billets of metal allowing the artist to use larger more dynamic forged design elements. Students will learn how to alloy and pour sterling silver ingots then forge the poured ingots into square billets. Students will forge the billets into variety of predetermined designs using a variety hot metal forging techniques. The forged elements made in this class can be directly integrated into future jewelry or sculpture designs. This is an intermediate metalsmithing class and students should have some experience with jewelry and metalsmithing fabrication techniques and studio tools.
