Explanation:
Spoils are used for infills and added with material taken from other galleries.
A "cava di prestito" or "galleria di prestito" are just a confusing names to define a mine whose sole use is the extraction on stone ecc.
Here it is used to indicate that these are not spoils but material mined for th purpose of completing the infill.

ottimo, vittorio. grazie infinite. ho visto poi che cava di prestito si traduce come "borrow pit", e penso che andrò con quella, anche per il glossario, perché non trovo "borrow gallery", "borrow drift" o "borrow tunnel".
