The paper reports on the bulk electronic properties of U(2)Ni(2)Sn, which crystallises in the tetragonal U(3)Si(2) structure. Pronounced anomalies in the temperature dependencies of magnetic susceptibility, specific heat and electrical resistivity indicate magnetic ordering below T(N) = 26 K. The existence of an antiferromagnetic ground state is corroborated by the occurrence of three metamagnetic transitions at about 30, 39 and 51 T in the field dependence of the magnetisation. The lack of any saturation tendency in the highest field applied suggests that further transitions may occur in even higher fields.
