The paper presents results of cryogenetic impact on mineral composition and geotechnological properties of alluvial gold-bearing raw materials of natural and man-made origin. In particular, distinctive features in mineral composition of alluvial deposits are described within the permafrost zone and outside it as well as the nature, mechanisms and peculiar features in reduction of man-made gold amalgams are shown. The results obtained were used to justify the expediency of implementation of the combined heap gold ore leaching technology at alluvial deposits in the permafrost zone, which includes preliminary concentration of coarse, medium and fine gold as well as the gold amalgam.
