I think you have a pyrite decomposition product called limonite, but I am not a geologist, so am happy to be corrected by those more suitably qualified.

Hey Puma, Dont loose heart mate. There is not a great deal of knowledge on the forum regarding mineral ID. There are a few Geos that check in occasionally but the majority on here are mainly interested with sluicing and detecting which is fine as it leaves more gold in the rocks for me and you.
Look up minerals here http://webmineral.com/ has a lot of different perameters you can search by; thumbsup
