This locality is best described as a small abandoned mine tunnel on Salt Water Creek in the Bullengarook area. Initially when a fibrous mineral was found at this deposit it was called Halotrichite. In 1978 it was tested and found to be closer to the Pickeringite end-member but with the possibility of some mixture with Halotrichite.

Taken from
To get to Bullengarook Quarry, travel 7.5kms out of Gisborne heading towards Bacchus Marsh. (See: approach map Turn right onto "Hassed" road at the small berg of Bullengarook. After 1km head left onto "Webb" road for 300m then right down "Fitzgerald". After another 1km find the 4 wheel drive track leading into the bush on the right, just at the edge of some paddocks. Park the family sedan here, or a little ways down the track. After about 500m you'll hit a clearing. Stay on the rightmost track, cross a small creek, and there it is, the quarry face, peeking out from behind some trees.
