A detailed study of low temperature electrical transport properties of CoGa ( = 54, 55.5, 57) alloy has been carried out. The origin of the resistivity anomalies and correlation between magnetic and electrical transport properties are identified through an elaborate analysis. The weak localization and enhanced electron-electron interaction effects partially support the electrical transport properties of the system. Further, the observed magnetoresistance can be well represented by localized model along with quantum corrections. The low temperature magnetoresistance value near critical composition is comparable to that reported in giant magnetoresistancematerials.
