Abstract: Generalised Heegner cycles are associated with a pair of an elliptic newform and a Hecke character over an imaginary quadratic extension $ K/\mathbf {Q}$. Let $ p$ be an odd prime split in $ K/\mathbf {Q}$ and let $ \ell \neq p$ be an odd unramified prime. We prove the non-triviality of the $ p$-adic Abel-Jacobi image of generalised Heegner cycles modulo $ p$ over the $ \mathbf {Z}_\ell $-anticylotomic extension of $ K$. The result is evidence for the refined Bloch-Beilinson and the Bloch-Kato conjecture. In the case of weight two and $ \ell $ an ordinary prime, it provides a non-trivial refinement of the results of Cornut and Vatsal on Mazur's conjecture regarding the non-triviality of Heegner points over the $ \mathbf {Z}_\ell $-anticylotomic extension of $ K$. In the case of weight two and $ \ell $ a supersingular prime, it settles Mazur's conjecture earlier known just for $ \ell $ ordinary.
