Abstract: This paper presents utilization of waste rock of surface coalmine in making bricks and blocks in place of clay bricks. These bricks and blocks may be used in building construction and as pavement material in and around coalmine. Acidic and alkaline overburden helps in neutralizing acidity or alkalinity of wastewater by making drain with such bricks.
