Data on the in-plane thermal conductivity and thermoelectric power of a stage-5 potassium donor graphite intercalation compound are reported in the temperature range 3 < T < 300 K. In the lowest temperature range the electronic contribution dominates the thermal conductivity, while at higher temperature there is a dominant lattice contribution, which is much smaller than pristine graphite. The thermopower is negative in the whole temperature range.
