The known copper and zinc deposits at Whundo are confined to a single stratigraphic horizon as a series of NW to NNW plunging shoots that outcropped as a sinuous line of discontinuous goethite-hematite gossans that can be traced for some 500 metres along strike. Individual ore shoots have a restricted strike length and are commonly 1-5 metres thick but reach a maximum thickness of 20 metres in the hinge zone of two small upright synclines in the axis of the major synclinal structure where they form the Whundo deposits.
The stratigraphic sequence at Whundo has undergone upper greenschist to lower amphibolite grade metamorphism, and is overprinted, in part, by hornblende hornfels contact metamorphism. These units have been folded about a moderately north plunging (25°-45°) synformal structure.
The West Whundo deposit outcropped as a gossan folded around a synclinal nose. The gossan was about 135 metres in length and up to 10 metres wide in the core of the syncline which plunges shallowly to the north. The gossan was surrounded by chloritic and sericitic schists, and with volcanic rocks present in the sequence.
Secondary copper mineralisation at West Whundo is present in two zones within the syncline; a southern zone centred about 75 metres to the north of the gossan, and a northern zone centred a further 90 metres to the NNE. The southern zone has a diameter of about 60 metres and the northern about 30 metres.
