Given a basic K-coalgebra C, we study the left Gabriel-valued quiver (QC,dC) of C by means of irreducible morphisms between indecomposable injective left C-comodules and by means of the powers radm of the radical rad of the category C-inj of the socle-finite injective left C-comodules. Connections between the valued quiver (QC,dC) of C and the valued quiver (QC¯,dC¯) of a colocalization coalgebra quotient fE:CC¯ of C are established.
