Testing of the completed floatation with screened material from the site is underway.

The new photographs have been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at Video clips of testing of the floatation circuit are expected to be added to the same section of the website in the next several days.

The gallery contains photographs of the testing of the float cells monitored by Edgar Blanco, senior metallurgist for Unico's wholly owned Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary.
