We are building a simulation of the targetry at TRIUMF to augment existing working knowledge and support target developments for radioactive beam production. The simulation, built in GEANT4, a Monte Carlo nuclear transport toolkit, consists of a uranium carbide target, bombarded by a 500 MeV proton beam. The simulation records the production rates of generated isotopes to experimental rates measured at the TRIUMF yield station. Results from this comparison are presented. This simulation will provide predictive powers to the experiments at TRIUMF.
