The production of Portland cement leads to high energy and natural resource consumption, as well as relevant emission of CO2 into the atmosphere. Thus, this research work intends to contribute to the study of Portland cement alternative alkali activated binders, which utilization can contribute to counteract to this status. Different samples of alkaline activated binders using different combinations of tungsten mining waste from Panasqueira Mines, milled glass and metakaolin were made. Compression tests were performed at 3, 7, 14 and 28 days of curing. For evaluating reactivity chemical leaching was measured. For such, conductivity tests were carried out simultaneously with pH measurement, SEM-BSE and ATR-FTIR analysis. Electrical conductivity tests enabled to preliminary identify the chemical leaching for different precursors. Additionally, by SEM-BSE it was possible to observed reacted and nonreacted particles, and the reactivity extend was confirmed by ATR-FTIR.
