Italian term or phrase: sterili di bancata
From a report from the survey of a a quarry.
"la messa a discarica della terra derivante dai lavori di scoperchiatura del deposito e sterili di bancata"

Essentially it is the dumping of waste material, but I'm stuck on what exactly the 'bancata' is.

Thanks in advance.

I went for "quarry face" as being more technical was not necessary at that point in the text, but the sense is essentially the same (I think)
