> Kali Yuga                :   432,000  years.......(Iron Age)

One Question, Are the yuags a measure of the elasped time of the 
universe or just the earth?

The Ages what you have listed above (golden, silver, etc...) are the 
measure of the technological advancement of Man.The period of ancient 
human culture characterized by the use of bronze that began between 
4000 and 3000 B.C.E and ended with the advent of the Iron Age. As 
such the matching of Various Ages to the yugas does not seem to be 
compatible.
