In this work, forbidden transition (E2, M1 and M2) parameters were investigated. These include wavelengths, weighted oscillator
strengths and transition probabilities for Mg-like Au (Au67+). Investigations were carried out using the AUTOSTRUCTURE
atomic code developed by Badnell [7]. Quantum electrodynamics (QED) and relativistic eects (Breit) calculations were carried
out. Correlation eects were also considered. The results obtained have been compared with existing literature and show
a good match
