We have measured the electrical resistivity, thermoelectric power, magnetic susceptibility, magnetoresistance and specific heat of a Pauli paramagnetic compound UB2. The magnetoresistance shows an extremely large H2-dependence for any field directions, indicating a compensated metal without an open orbit. This result is consistent with the results of the dHvA experiment and 5f-itinerant band calculation.
