Radukov, as cited by the Focus news agency, informed that a total of 59 people were underground.
The strike at the mine continues in its second day.
The miners have spent over 30 hours 300m below ground level.
The protest started Thursday morning, when the 43 miners who had worked the night shift refused to surface.
