The "gold foil" experiment, what Rutherford referred to as the "alpha-scattering experiments", showed that atoms contain a small, dense, positively charged nucleus, and that atoms are mostly empty space. And by the way, the actual work was done by Ernest Marsden, under the direction of Hans Geiger. It was not "Rutherford's experiment". But Rutherford did come up with the explanation for the observations brought to him by Geiger and Marsden.

The "gold-foil" experiments showed absolutely nothing about any subatomic particles since only the electron was known in 1911 when the decisive paper on the nucleus was published. It was not till 1919 that Rutherford conclusively determined that nuclei contained protons, and it was not until 1932 that the neutron was confirmed by Chadwick.C. the number of electrons increased.
