Hello Romulus the 2nd:

In 1908 and 1910 Harvard University, in conjunction with the Boston Museum and under the auspices of George Reisner, excavated Menkaure’s Valley Temple at the eastern terminus of the Causeway:





In the below image, Khentkawes’ Monument is visible in the upper left hand corner:





Subsequently, the excavation was left to the elements, much to the vexation of modern archaeologists:





It was/is located at the foot of Menkaure’s Causeway and is now only faintly visible in the satellite image below:





The area identified in the OP appears to be an excavation debris mound; possibly from Lehner’s recent (adjacent) Khentkawes’ Town excavations:
