Sedimentary rocks belonging to the late Precambrian Older Sandstone Series (overlain unconformably by the Eocambrian-Lower Cambrian Vestertana Group) are described from the Vadsø-Komagelva area on the northern side of Varangerfjord. The c. 1300 m thick Varangerfjord Older Sandstone Series succession is divided into twelve informal members. A correlation of the upper c. 1000 m. of this succession with the late Precambrian Tanafjord Group is then presented. Finally the regional dicordance present between the Older Sandstone Series and the Veatertana Group is briefly mentioned.
