    MuSR science requires the availabilty of intense beams
    of polarised positive muons. At the ISIS pulsed muon facility
    at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory the muons are generated
    from a low Z thin slab graphite target inserted in
    the proton beam. We report on the use of the Monte Carlo
    simulation code Geant4 in simulations of the performance
    of the current muon target. The results are benchmarked
    against the experimental performance of the target.
