Part of the huge undercut area just north of Waste Area #1. This area is unusual because of the return slope facing the photograph. The undercut is so deep that, instead of removing all of it, a slope was cut back up to the natural ground. A slope failure occurred in this return cut, which was only a 2:1 slope, indicating just how unstable this material is. This whole area will be filled with blast rock once it is cleaned up. Photo taken October 1998.
