Wc report the observation of giant magnctorcsistance in granular systems prepared by either Melt-spinning or sputtering. For Melt-spun CoxCu1-x alloys, with x varying between 5 and 30%, Magnctoresitancc amplitudes of 20% in 50 kOc at 5 K were obtained, similar to those reported for the same alloys prepared by sputtering. For sputtered (Ni80Fe20)xAg1-x alloys, three different contributions to the magnetorcsisiancc have been clearly identified: The spin-valve (or giant) Magnctorcsistance, scattering on magnetic fluctuations, and anisotropie Magnetorcsistancc. These three contributions have their own dependences on the size of the magnetic particles, on the degree of intermixing between NiFe and Ag, and on the temperature. In the third scries of samples, sputtered (Co70Fe30)xAg1-x, very large magnctorcsistance amplitude has been observed (AR/R as high as 20% at room temperature in 10 kOc and 60% at 10 K).
