We have studied the magnetic and electrical properties of several amorphous rare-earth—transition-metal alloys obtained by splat cooling. Low-field susceptibility, high-field magnetization and electrical resistivity measurements were made between 1.6 and 300 K. Mössbauer results are reported for (Gd65Fe35)90B10 at the temperatures of 80 and 300 K. Resistivity measurements show both positive and negative coefficients and in some cases maxima or minima that are associated with magnetic ordering or Kondo-type scattering, respectively.
