There should be a nether version of the gold ore. That'd explain where the Pigmen get all their gold from. They would get angry if you try to mine it in front of them.
The first part isn't that original of an idea, but there's also a second part:
The Nether Mine would be a new structure in the Nether. It's a giant crater with stairs and walkways going all around it.
The walls are full of gold ore & sometimes even gold blocks. Maybe you'd also see Pigmen mining it with their gold pickaxes (which could just be an animation, and they wouldn't actually mine it).
Buff looking 2.5 blocks tall Pigman Guards are constantly patrolling the area, defending from intruders. They would always have a full set of golden armor.
It would be based on the IRL open-pit style mines:
