Name(s) in local language(s):
Romatespitze Nordflanke (Rameter Spitz Nordflanke), Weissental, Gasteiner Tal, Hohe Tauern, Salzburg, Österreich


Mineralized clefts in syenite gneiss on the north slope of the Romatespitze, which belongs to the Goldberg group.
Located on the southern side of the upper Weissen valley, close to the Carinthian border.


Notes:
- On official maps, the mountain is called "Rameter Spitz". In the mineralogical literature, it is mostly referred to as "Romatespitze" though.
- Minerals reported from the south slope are listed for Carinthia.
