The accident occurred at 3:58 a.m. in the Dongfang coal mine in Xiejiaji District of Huainan City, when 39 miners were in the underground shaft, said the rescue headquarters, Xinhua reports.

Ten workers were lifted out of the mine after the blast. One of them was injured and sent to a hospital. Twenty-nine others were trapped.

The licensed mine is privately owned and has an annual capacity of 90,000 tonnes.
