Uranium monopnictides are well known to show various antiferromagnetic orders. In this case, series, the degree of the localization is an important topic on which the interests of many researchers have been focused. However, high-quality samples are needed for such investigation. We grew single crystals of USb with a ratio of resistivity (r.r.r.) of more than 30 by the Bridgman method and subsequent annealing. Using this high-quality sample we succeeded in observing the de Haas-van Alphen signal in USb.
