Recent progress in studies on low carrier concentration systems of magnetically ordered and non-magnetic heavy Fermion metals are discussed. Successive steps in the high field magnetisation, the magnetic structure, and the influence of high pressure are reported and the relation with the observed Fermi surface for CeP is discussed. The origin of the low carrier concentration in USb is also discussed based on the first observation of dHvA oscillations. It is also unambiguously demonstrated that the unconventional heavy Fermion state of Yb4As3 is intrinsic and not due to impurities.
