You are correct, the gold plated leads are attached to the bonding pads using 60/40 SnPb solder. The Gold plated copper leads do not have any solder on them. When attaching lead extensions to the sensor, you will need to prepare the connecting wire ends with a RMA (rosin mildly active) soldering flux, tin them with a minimal amount of 60/40 SnPb solder. Use a low wattage soldering iron which will not exceed 200 °C.
