If you open the sitemap1.xml in a browser, you get a more detailed message:

This page contains the following errors:

error on line 107873 at column 1309145: error parsing attribute name
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

This is odd. I'm now getting this:

Sitemap file size error
Your Sitemap exceeds the maximum file size limit. Please create multiple Sitemaps containing fewer URLs to meet the file size limit.

But stagegold.com/sitemap.xml is broken down into sitemap1.xml and sitemap2.xml as  you can see if you go to the link.

Hello,

generator has default limit set to 40000 URLs per file, please try to decrease it to say 30000.
