Definitely. But use a thinset mortar and grout designed for outdoor use. Also, check each tile for cracks before installing. You will see the cracks running laterally on the edge of the tile. Tiles with crack will eventually separate and you will have to remove and reinstall the tile sometime down the road - not fun.

I have installed slate tile butted up to each other without grout lines, but you will need to cut each slate tile down to exact measurements since slate tile is never exactly 12" x 12".

Answer: 
yes but you are going to want to use a water tight seal since its so pourous. start with 511 impregnator sealer then use another sealer on top of it to waterproof it.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to install it's hard to install but look beatiful, i'm not professional but i try too. May 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Good I thought slate is stone and would be a hard solid material. This stuff is gorgeous but it flakes really bad. The backs of the tiles had flaked a lot when I took them out and were very uneven. I laid them down on cement for a dry fit and several broke under my feet. They appear to be clay rather than stone. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome I love this tile! It is time consuming to cut but well worth it. I put this my barbershop and it looks . March 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible I can't belive I bought this tile I have 50sq ft of breakage all the tiles are different thicknesses out of square and different sizes a complete nightmare it made my pourch look horrible I wish I could rip it up and send it back January 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful but tricky to install... I laid 400 sq. ft. of this tile in an older home. It really helps to mask the imperfections of older homes and uneven floors. However, the uneven surface and thickness makes it extremely difficult to grout and to lay. I am an amateur and this was my 2nd do-it-yourself tile project. If you are artistic and have a good eye for patterning, this tile is excellent and can provide a unique floor that will "wow" your guests... Since the first project using this tile, I have used it on 2 more occasions and will be using it to tile the kitchen in my 1895 farm house. July 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst tile I have ever purchased I have worked in construction for 30 yrs. and this is the worst tile i have ever tried to use. I purchased 10 boxes for a small project. After opening 3 boxes I had to return all of it and purchase it some where else. The tiles varied in width by up to 3/16" and the tiles where out of square by up to 3/16" by the time i had put down a 4 foot run my grout lines where off by 3/8 of an inch or more, not good when your dealing with only 1/4" grout lines. September 1, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by multi color tile I really like the look of these tiles; however, they are not practical. They are built with layers of thin 'paper-like' compressed material that can come off. The surface is not flat so shoes can get caught on them. Also the tiles are of different thickness so installation is extrememly difficult. Avoid if you can. June 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful but a little difficult to install. I've been working with this slate for the past 7 or 8 years. This is pretty good slate - especially considering the price. Most of the slate is 1/4" inch thick, but some of the pieces are thicker and some are thinner. This can make installation a challenge. When I'm installing a floor, I will go through all of the boxes that I've bought and separate the best pieces that are closest to the nominal 1/4" thickness. I will return any tiles that are crack or damaged. I either set aside the very thin and thick tiles for other projects (wall or ceiling installations) or I will return them to the store with the damaged pieces. Other people do this also because you will see tiles at the store wrapped in plastic straps. These were returned tiles. New tiles are always boxed. Also, each tile is not exactly 12" x 12". This can cause grout line variances. Not a huge issue, but sometimes I will cut the tiles down to 11.5" x 11.5" exactly so that the grout lines are perfect. It's easiest to do this with 10" tile saw to do this. That's going over the top but I thought I would pass on that tip. I like to apply a sealer when I'm done with the installation. This gives the tile a very nice sheen and also darkens the tiles just a bit. Also, try use a "dressing stone" to smooth the tops edges of the tile before you install the tiles. This makes it easier on the feet if your grout isn't flush with the top of the tile. Slate tile is a bit more difficult to install compared to ceramic, but I think that the effort is worth it.
