A list? What kind of fun is that? Part of the satisfaction and joy of climbing such peaks is working it out yourself!
For South America, for a long time it was Chimbote, in Chile, near Tupungato, but that was climbed last year. No idea what it is now.
Labuche Kang II
Pretty sure John Biggar thinks there are still some unclimbed 6000m tops in the Atacama. Not sure how prominent they are.
Labuche Kang II is unclimbed. The earlier ascent thought they were going to the second highest mountain in the group but unknowingly went to the 3rd highest.

As for that PlanetMountain article, yes, there is now an argument for Mandala over Trikora
