Resistivity and Hall effect measurements on n-type undoped Ga-rich InxGa1-xN (0.06 <= x <= 0.135) alloys grown by metal-organic vapour phase epitaxy (MOVPE) technique are carried out as a function of temperature (15-350K). Within the experimental error, the electron concentration in InxGa1-xN alloys is independent of temperature while the resistivity decreases as the temperature increases. Therefore, 1nxGai_x1V (0.06 <= x <= 0.135) alloys are considered in the metallic phase near the Mott transition. It has been shown that the temperature-dependent metallic conductivity can be well explained by the Mott model that takes into account electron-electron interactions and weak localization effects.
