    Rescuers have uncovered another body of a miner killed in a deadly methane blast at a Siberian coalmine last year, local officials said on Tuesday.

    So far, a total of 79 bodies have been discovered, while 12 others are still missing.

    Last week, another two bodies were found at the Raspadskaya mine, located in the town of Mezhdurechensk in Siberia's Kemerovo region.

    Kuzbass governor, Aman Tuleev, said the search operation would continue until the last body was found.

    Raspadskaya, one of Russia's largest coalmines, was hit by two consecutive methane blasts in May, 2010, the second taking the lives of rescue workers sent in after the initial explosion.
