The experimental studies of gold leaching from the cyanidation cakes for one of the Far East region deposits is shown in the article. Carbonate-cyanide and hypochlorite-chloride reagents were used for leaching and were electro-photo activated before leaching. Preoxidation of mineral matter by sulfate-peroxide solution were carried out. The mechanical-chemical activation of mineral material was carried out for gold increased extraction. Mechanical activation provided both better cake grinding and formation of micro cracks in the quartz and adular grains. The impact provides the liberation of dispersed nano-sized gold. The change in the granulometric characteristics of initial samples was considered from the upper, middle and lower horizons of the tailing dump as a result of complex physical-chemical effects. It was established that the gold reprecipitated on new activated surfaces of quartz and clay-mica minerals during the leaching process (for the samples of the lower and middle tailing horizons). Carbon in pulp (CIP) technology after the first stage of mechanical activation ensures a loss reduction of the valuable component.
