Single-crystals of LuSb were investigated by means of electrical resistivity and magnetoresistance measurements. The compound was found to exhibit giant magnetoresistance exceeding 3000%, low-temperature resistivity plateau, and Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations. It was characterized as a semimetal with nearly balanced contributions of electron and hole carriers to the magnetotransport properties. The experimental findings, supported by the results of electronic structure calculations, proved that the magnetotransport in LuSb can be described in the scope of 3D multi-band Fermi surface model without topologically non-trivial electronic states.
