We are developing a new 3D Monte Carlo transport code 'IMPGYRO' for the analysis of the heavy impurities in fusion edge plasmas. The code directory solves the 3D equations of motion for the test impurity ions to take into account their gyro motion. Most of the important processes, such as the multi-step ionization process and Coulomb scattering, etc., are also included in the model. The results for the prompt redeposition rate of tungsten ions agree well with the analytic results. In addition, 2D density profiles for tungsten ions of each charge state in a simple slab geometry have been calculated for given background plasma profiles typical of a detached plasma state. Although the code is now still under development, these initial results show that the code has potential as a useful tool, not only for the analysis of the prompt redeposition very close to the wall, but also for the analysis of more large scale impurity transport processes.
