This research based on open pit mining activity, especialy coal mining, which will followed by digging the overburden. Therefore it needs an area as a place for dumping the material of overburden. So, this research aims to determine the location of disposal area based on engineering geological study. This research did by engineering geological mapping. By doing it, samples of soil and rock were taken. They used for laboratory analysis, for gaining information about engineering character of soil and rock in research area. The result shows that research area consist of eight engineering geological units. There are 2 of 8 engineering geological units which quilified for disposal area. Requirements for a land which could be disposal area are: has lithology with low permeability, slightly slope, and low plain landform.
