In the Coal Minning Region of Santa Catarina is located the largest pole producing ceramic floors in Brazil. There is a great availability of this alkaline material that can potentially be used as a neutralizing agent to prevent the generation of AMD in the coal minning. In this work the characterization of the potential of the generation of DAM through static and kinetic tests of a coal waste obtained in a beneficiation plant of the coal minning region, was characterized chemically the waste originated during the step of polishing in the production of porcelain tiles and determined the neutralization potential of the alkali feldspar waste. The results indicate that the coal mining waste presents a high potential of acidity (AP), the waste of the production of porcelanates presents as a major component of its composition silicon oxide and aluminum oxide, but also other oxides such as of potassium and has a moderate neutralization potential (NP). The results indicate a moderate potential of use as an alkaline additive in the prevention of AMD generation. However other uses are recommended, such as the production of soil-cement with this waste.
