Ohhh boy. As my 2015 PhD was on iron production, there’s a lot of material in my reference management software that’s related to iron and steel. I’ve culled it a little, and present it below. However if you’re specifically interested in published scientific analyses of smelting slag, I have broken that material off into a separate page to make it more accessible. And because honestly, it’s hella niche!
