On parle d'une usine de broyage de minerai située dans un massif montagneux :

"The majority of the facilities are built on pads made of compacted fill, except for the feed area of the ore preparation plant, which is ***in-cut*** to allow for the difference in elevation required for the plant feed."

J'imagine que la zone d'alimentation en question est "encastrée" dans la colline, et non construite sur une plate-forme de remblai. Y'a-t-il un terme exact pour traduire cette idée ?

Merci !
