The transport and magnetic properties of the Eu1-xCaxB6 (0x0.4) single crystals were studied in the wide ranges of temperatures (1.8-300 K) and magnetic fields (up to 8 T). The experimental data allow to identify a metal-insulator transition (MIT) at the critical Ca concentration xMIT≈0.3, which agrees well with the predictions of double exchange model (V.M. Pereira et al. Phys. Rev. Lett., 93 (2004) 147202). A significant enhancement of magnetoresistive effect is observed below 100K for Eu1-xCaxB6 compounds corresponding to the metallic side of the MIT (xxMIT). The drastic decrease of paramagnetic Curie temperature evaluated from the magnetic and magnetotransport data is discussed in terms of quantum MIT scenario recently proposed for this low carrier density system.
