Usually red dirt like that indicates iron.. in specific iron oxide (think rust)

Some volcanic rocks are red, but that doesnt look volcanic.

Ground that is red like that is usually mineralized and can have gold in it. How large an area is like that.

Whats the ground around it look like ?

Are there any mines around the area or signs of old timer diggings ?

Have you done any detecting in that area ?

With out doing test on it there's no telling what might be in it .

yes theres a mine of copper about 1 mile away or 2 , and many people have told me that not only copper is found on that mine but also gold, buy nobody wants to tell that, its kind of a secret.

If you can get a typographical map it will help, but if not work the whole area anyway.
Detect ANY place that water has ran down from the highest parts in the area to start with.
Then work the higher ground between these areas.
Keep on the lookout for any old worked areas such as test pits and the like, if you find any
of these start as close to them as you can and work down slope from them using a fan shaped
search pattern. Copper and Gold nuggets can be found together so dig all targets.
Work LOW AND SLOW with that coil ( as small a search coil as you can ) and you might
do some good there. Someone else did the real hard work for you ,they found enough in
that area to start up a mine !!!
