The basal contact of the Løkvikfjell Formation of the former Raggo Group on Varanger Peninsula is an unconformity rather than a thrust as had been previously supposed. A new stratigraphy is formally proposed for this formation which is here upgraded to group status. This stratigraphy is based on new mapping and sedimentological work and allows a stratigraphic framework for the Løkvikfjell Group to be established for the northern part of Varanger Peninsula. The unconformity is an angular one which implies a previously unrecognised deformation phase in the underlying Barents Sea Group rocks. It also helps to establish the age relations of the Løkvikfjell Group and bears on correlation problems.
