Unico, Inc. Adds New Photo Gallery Showing Work to Complete Secondary Substation at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced that a new photo gallery showing the completion of the secondary electrical substation at the Deer Trail Mine has been posted to the company's website, The completion of the secondary substation will allow for electricity to be supplied to power the Deer Trail mill and processing facility once the main substation is energized.

The new photo gallery showing the work to complete the secondary substation at the Deer Trail Mine has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at

The main substation will supply the 1.5 megawatts of power required to operate the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine. The completed subsidiary substation will be used to reduce the voltage from 12,470 volts to the 480 volts needed to operate the mill facility.

The photo gallery includes photographs of the wiring of components at the secondary substation as well as the connections to the main mill buildings. Two main distribution panels feed the motor control centers throughout the two main mill buildings. The distribution wire used to take the 480 volts from the secondary transformer to the 1200-amp panel has been installed, as has the copper wire that moves the 480-volt power from the 1200-amp disconnect to the distribution panels.

The circuit panels inside the mill buildings that run the lighting are currently being wired, and the wiring of panels and controls in the mill buildings is also underway.

The secondary substation was completed with the assistance of electrical contractor Cache Valley Electric (, one of the largest electrical contractors in the western United States, and work shown in the gallery was undertaken in cooperation with a crew from Cache Valley Electric.

"We are pleased to have added this new gallery to our website in order to show shareholders a portion of the work that was required to complete the secondary substation, which is now prepared to carry power to the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "We will continue to supply photographs of our progress at the Deer Trail Mine, which has expanded to include preparations for underground maintenance work to be conducted by Atlas Fausett Contracting for potential future underground mining activities at the Deer Trail Mine. The reopening of the PTH Tunnel, coupled with the preparations to begin processing the screened, above-ground stockpiled material at the site, help to underscore the importance of securing power to begin operations at the mill facility."

Unico recently completed the purchase of the Deer Trail Mine for its Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary.
