After our first round of play, we had three people with thief cards in front of them. Is there a way to determine who steals from whom? We just chose clockwise from the last person to play. Is this correct?

During the last round, the gold was not discovered before all the cards ran out. There were no saboteurs in the game, but there was a profiteer and a geologist. The geologist was given three gold as expected for having three gems in play, but we weren't entirely sure on how to score the profiteer. We decided that even though there were no saboteurs, that "team" still one and the profiteer was entitled to 5-2=3 gold. Has anyone else ran into this before?

Regarding the thief card: the order should start from the last player who put down the card, then proceed in reverse order of the card play. So the earliest you play the thief card, the latest you steal.

Your next situation is correctly resolved.

My rules say the thieves play in card play order, after the last played thief starts first:

"Players who have a Theft Card in front of them can steal one GP
from another player. Players can make change as necessary. The
last player to play a Theft Card can steal first, then other players
with Theft Cards go in clockwise order."

"The youngest player goes first, then the other players follow in a clockwise direction."
