In GdNiC2, the magnetic state is investigated under the high magnetic fields and the low temperatures. We find the intermediate phases, in which the magnetization value is close to a half of the full moment, and the successive transition in the phase boundary between the antiferromagnetic, the metamagenetic, and the paramagnetic phases. The mechanism of the intermediate phase is discussed.
