    I am 99.99% sure that you cannot make "gold" a countable noun. I have never heard of "golds." (Of course, I have never heard of a lot of things!)

    I should suggest that you need something like:

    These gold bars/earrings/etc. have been brought from South Africa.

    Furthermore, it might be better to use the active: I brought these gold ____ from South Africa.

    Re: please correct the sentence

    Or simply "This gold has been brought from South Africa."

    Start every sentence with a capital letter. End every sentence with a period, question mark or exclamation point. Capitalize proper nouns (like "South Africa").
