Can I lay tiling over top of cork floor underlay?

Hi everyone 

Really confused with this one

had vinyl laid over top Cork floor . Cork underlay is glued to house concrete slab . Ripped the vinyl out . Cork underlay is clean and strong 
Can i lay Proclein tiles 60x60cm over the cork floor . 
Thanks in advance

I had exactly the same situation, cork tiles well stuck. I asked a tile layer. He said yes, and he did so. All is well & that was about 10 years ago.
