Rust coming from chimney


Had rust stain on shingles coming down from chimney to gutter for years. Finally had replaced with faux brick veneer and new flashing. But rust has returned. Anyone know what's causing this? I've heard that there are some acids that work well on rust but I need to fix this. Please help, thanks.

Not to be a master of the obvious, but you've got Iron rusting somewhere in the Mix. Pictures?

There's something else in there that's getting wet, corroding, and leaving stains as the water runs down. The question is what or where is that material?

Some pictures of the stains and upward from it would help.
