Sorry - what do you mean by "in gold" ?

Do you mean that they claim to have found it in (inside) a sample of gold?

Correction: one chemist claims to have found it. Thus far, there has been no peer-review of his work. One wonders if this gentleman will wind up as the next Fleischman and Pons, creators of "cold fusion" (their device would have made a pretty good battery, if palladium weren't so rare and expensive)...
