Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Gold has greater atomic mass than Iron, therefore it would release nuclear energy by fission.

Nuclear binding energy is at its maximum for Iron. therefore neither fission nor fusion processes would be able to release nuclear energy from Iron.

Carbon is relative lighter atomic mass than Iron, therefore it would release nuclear energy by fusion.
