All Gold Bar Treasure Hunt Locations in Red Dead Redemption 2

Items like gold bars, jewelry bags, rings, and chains can be sold to the Fence for a big chunk of cash with which you can buy your favorite horse, weapons, or clothing. Each gold bar will sell for $500, while a gold ingot will sell for $300. With that said, the following is a list of all treasure hunt and gold bar locations in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Limpany Sheriff's Office

This is one of the best ways to make money at the very early stages of the game. After the completion of chapter one, you can find a burnt down town called Limpany, located toward the southwest of the gang's camp in Horseshoe Overlook. Inside the Sheriff's office in Limpany, you will find one gold bar in a small locker under the table.

The Statue Room

This strange room full of slightly damaged statues can be found toward the east of Donner Falls. As seen from the map, right below the "I" of Ambarino, there will be a small opening between two rocks. Enter through the gap, and you will find seven statues arranged in a circle, with a small statue in the middle. You can interact with each statue, however, interacting with them in the correct order is the key here. Each statue has a value denoted by the number of fingers on their arm.

The correct order to solve the puzzle is to interact with the statues with prime numbers—two, three, five, and seven. You will easily find the statues with two, three, and five fingers. The final statue will be the one that is missing an arm. Solving the puzzle will lift the statue in the middle, revealing three gold bars.

Granite Pass Train Wreck

While wandering through the Granite Pass, you will find a train wreck situated at the bottom of the ravine. This train was apparently carrying high valuables when it fell off the bridge. While staring straight at the wrecked carriages, go up the rocks to your right. Then, you will find a small crack in the rocks to your left through which you can climb up. After you climb up, turn around, and jump onto the ledge opposite to you. You can then drop down into the upright carriage, where you will find two gold bars.

Braithwaite Manor

After the completion of Chapter three, where Dutch and his men burn down the Braithwaite's mansion, you can revisit the location to find one gold bar inside a locked box in the rubble of the building. You can also loot Catherine Braithwaite's corpse to loot a porcelain brooch belonging to the late character.

The High Stakes Treasure map can be obtained from a random encounter with an NPC looking for a treasure. This NPC spawns randomly in the area between Strawberry and Valentine and is heard complaining about a man from China who sold the map to him. If you miss this NPC too many times, you can buy the treasure map from the Fence.

Upon approaching and questioning the stranger with the map, they will tell you that the map is of no value and will try to run away. You can obtain the map by either lassoing them or looting their corpse.

Go through the opening and head left until you see a Rock Carving. Take the path from the Rock Carving, and keep going until you see a small ledge. Jump down to the ledge, and then jump down again to the ledge opposite you. Keep following the path, and you will see a hole in the rock with which you can interact with.

Here, you will find a pearl necklace and the second map of this treasure hunt.
