"Also reddish crystals"... If you can isolate/remove a crystal to allow a razor blade to be scraped along the faces(sides), you'll probably find its just surface
coloration. If color runs through the crystal, you may have something of value on the rock/minerals collectors market. As for the assays, if you were following
standard sampling procedures, you are way ahead of us in finding value at your claim. Good luck and keep posting developments!!

Come out from under your bed today...... DO SOMETHING!
The yellowish color MAY be chalcopyrite. The red color might be limonite or hemetite, both usually found with iron oxide. Possibly. TTC
Goodnight, Jesty Puller, wherever you are!

Calories in... calories burned... whats left is you.
Crush part of it, run it through a 20 or 30 mesh screen and pan the dust. You would be amazed at the gold in some of those rocks, even if you can't see the gold on the rock. Watch for a fine yellow line on the edge of the black sand; the gold may be so small that it shows up only when buddying up with the rest of them. If you find gold in it, consider filing a lode claim. TKC (Then call me!)
I knew a man who rode his horse backwards, because seeing where he has been was much less scary than seeing where he was going.

Follow the vein. Try to find a dip in it.
