    Welcome Aboard skyder_g! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... and selecting location information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country). You might also consider adding your state (or country) to your displayed profile (SETTINGS -> EDIT PROFILE) so if you ask a question, etc. - members may have more success helping you (your location may help etc.)...
    2nd - I moved ya from HELP! over to ROCKS/GEMS for more exposure.

    Granite with pyrite and possibly a little chalcopyrite. Gold is usually not visible in these type of rocks if present.

    Agree with Moesia pyrite/chalcopyrite - host rock looked at first like schist but I think it's a quartz diorite
