Thanks for the info here Syd.

I had myself heard of the discovery of a few 18th dynasty 'prime-minister' tombs similar to those on the North-Western hillside, the ones that are tastefully illuminated in the evening. However I was told that although these were also on the WEST side, they were infact quite near to the great quarry, at a point, a little short distance from the broken obelisk,also on the WEST BANK. I to this time have made no comment until I go there myself this Autumn, I know this area well, and no tombs have ever been found in this immediate vicinity, however Syd, this, as I am sure you know, proves nothing. Once again, thank you for the link.
