Kento Zenihiro (of cones fame) has reported rumours on Facebook that the lost Tomb of Nebamun has been rediscovered.  The tomb (if found) has already been stripped of its reliefs: many are in the British Museum already.  Nonetheless, re-finding the tomb would be welcome and might give better context to the BM reliefs.

I am just off out but will try to investigate later.

Two corrections:
Kento is famous for his work with *cones* not casts
and the news he is quoting comes from "DEUTSCHES ARCHÄOLOGISCHES INSTITUT ABTEILUNG KAIRO
Veröffentlicht im September 2012
R U N D B R I E F 2011
Vorbemerkung". His original post and repost in the Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities group both link to http://www.dainst.org/sites/default/files/media/abteilungen/kairo/projekte/rundbrief_2011.pdf?ft=all
