Three radiocarbon dates have been published for Hilazon Tachtit Cave. Because no stratigraphic association of the dates has been published, a critical review of the dates is not yet possible. The sum of the dates ranges between 10920 BC and 10730 BC.[1] 

[1]The complete sum of the dates is ∑: 10920BC (65.1%) 10730BC; 10490BC ( 3.1%) 10460BC (OxCal). Grosman and Munro (2007) indicate a range between 12400-12000 cal BP (INTCAL 2005). Geographical coordinates for the site have not been published so far.
