In several papers, Schnorrer-Köhler and Schnorrer described slag minerals from the Harz without giving specific locality data. In most cases this was done in order to protect certain archaeologically important/sensitive or very small localities.

- In all of the papers, the locality is sometimes given only in the photo caption, not in the text itself.
- The mineral list is presently incomplete, but will be updated. The reported "leiteite" might be valentinite.
