How Do You Get Gold In Ghost Of Tsushima
This metal can be considered the equivalent of Wax Wood, meaning that it is very rare, but it is used to upgrade swords.
As you can see in the picture above you will be able to get it as a reward for liberating the Mongol Strongholds.
On your map, they look like large huts. You can see all of them here.
