Well, it does sound bad - if I was absolutely desparate to get those files back, there are some other things I might try.
Can't remember what you've tried yet, so my first thing would be to use a Ubuntu live USB stick and see if I can read the disk from there.
If I had access to another Mini9, I might try my SSD in that other machine, just to check that it absolutely is the disk. I might even try just taking out my SSD and putting it back, to see if that does anything (although that's a long shot).
Next thing would be fsck - the command line file system check command. Take a look at Apple's notes for this (Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck).
Finally, I've heard good things about DiskWarrior - but never tried it myself. Two big problems with this - it's commercial so you'll have to buy it and I don't know if it will work on a Mini9. This is really outside my knowledge, so I can't really offer any guidance on it.
