The Billeroo davidite prospect is on a saddle of a small ridge 9 km southwest of the Billeroo Copper Mine, they are two separate localities. This prospect has been identified as a source of uranium ore by Pepininni Minerals in 2009 and has since been renamed as the Becaroo Prospect. This locality is noted for large psuedo-octohedral crystals of davidite occurring within and hence shedding from quartz veins that cut through a granitic outcrop.
