    The Truth
    The reddish brown is most likely rust from iron in the rock.If the area is highly mineralized look around for any pegmatite.If you cant find any gold you might come across a gas pocket.If you find a gas pocket (made while the rock was forming)youll get yourself some crystals or gemstones.

    Ask Terry Soloman. He has forgotten more about gold than most of us will ever know...
