Modern metallurgy pays more attention to chemical processes safety of staff and nature environment. One of the most hazardous branches in metallurgy is gold ores cyanidation. Researches on possibility to avoid cyanide leaching are carrying out during last thirty years. Cyanide competitors are thiosulphate and thiourea solvers. Within international  cooperation  between National Mineral Resources University and Lappeenranta University of Technology researches are devoted to tiosulphate leaching improvement. Main efforts  are  forwarded  on  process chemistry, however mass transfer processes of heterogenic  systems  are  important  as well. Therefore their optimization is planned to achieve by means of computer modeling based on particle image velocimetry.
