I get gold from planting corn and potatoes. It's the hardest element to get for Terra. If I have 10 Sims plant corn or potatoes, I might get one gold when I harvest. Other people get gold from doing other things, but it seems to pop at least once a day for the two crops.
I think, therefore, I Sim! (Or I did before they told me to "harvest" them)

Unfortunately I can't help you. Perturbee has a SFP blog that talks about the various mysterious island resources and sadly the gold bar is one of those items that is hard to obtain. If I'm bored I usually spend LP but I've found they will drop when your least expecting it. Back when dove was sponsoring you could get resources but now dove isn't sponsoring SFP anymore.

My advice is to try gardening, cooking like the really long ones that take a day, read an encyclopedia, view a globe. Sadly the resources all drop randomly. Your best bet to find the gold bars are in the mystery boxes like in the X5 or x10 key ones.

Someone suggested in another thread doing the 1 second wardrobe change multiple times and that works for me but there is no guarantee from moment to moment which of the resources it will give you.

It is exactly the same for me. Gold is (in my game) the easiest ressource from the four rare ones to get. I earn one or two gold eveyday by planting corn and potatoes if i can't stay for corn.
I have NEVER spent a single LP on thé four monuments and the riches of terra reached Level 20 while the three ôther monuments are Level 16 or 17 (i don't remember exactly).

If I have time to sit with the game for a while, I have 10 sims on one lot planting bell peppers over and over. This usually yields quite a few resources including gold. I've never noticed one action generating specific resources though, it seems totally random. I think it's just if you repeat an action over and over sooner or later a resource will pop up. I always had most trouble getting magma embers then suddenly last week got 3 in a row.
