This is the zircon U-Pb dating and Lu-Hf isotopic date as the supplementary table of the paper. This study utilized detrital zircon U-Pb dating and Lu-Hf isotopic analysis of quartzites, schists, and sandstones from the Kokchetav Complex, complemented by structural analysis, to clarify the Mesoproterozoic to early Paleozoic tectonic history of the Kokchetav region in Northern Kazakhstan. The manuscript offers novel insignts into scientific issues such as the early Paleozoic tectonic evolution of the NW Altiaids and the accretionary processes involving microcontinental fragments.
