    Personally I'd magnet fish the area first to get rid of as much junk as possible.

    Any good White's, Tesoro, Fisher or Minelab Metal Detector made for use under water down to 20 feet to several hundred feet or made for both land and water use will likely do the job. It depends upon how accurate you want it and the price you are willing to pay. Considering that the Gold Bars have been sitting on or under the river or stream bed for some 100 years or more, they will likely throw off one heck of a wide signal which could make pinpointing the exact location or center of the target difficult. You may be wanting to Scuba Dive to locate the Gold Bars but understand that any metal you have on you for diving and/or for digging, will likely interfere with finding the signal of the Gold Bars. You could snorkel or use a Hookah System to stay down for longer times to search for the intended targets and neither will interfere with the signal. Do understand that you may and likely will encounter other targets that give off strong signals under water, so it would behoove you to remove these while searching as they will likely mask or hide the signals from the Gold Bars. Who knows, the other targets could turn out to be some things that are special or even very rare and worth a good sum of money.

    Good luck!

    I'll be the first to throw a dollar into the ring and say "single post "
    Someone owes Tom a dollar.
