- The Ulalinka site can be dated reliably to older than ca. 300,000 years
- The tools found appeared of ancient derivation due to their primitive form. This fact swayed Okladnikov to posit that they were extremely old, when in fact the hominins who manufactured them were simply making expedient use of local material, a material necessitates the use of the bipolar technique. The tools may therefore be of any age.
- If the Paleomagnetic data collected by Okladnikov and Pospelova (1982) are correct, then the site is older the Brunhes-Matuyama boundary reversal and is thus of final lower Pleistocene era and somewhat earlier than 781,000 years old
- The claim that the site is from an even earlier date of ca. 1.5Mya has only slight evidence and unlikely to be correct
- Further research is required to establish, the exact age of Ulalinka and whether is truly the oldest site of human occupation in Siberia
