Unico, Inc. Announces Additional Photo Gallery Showing Recent Progress of Reconstruction Work at the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine Including Relocation of Laboratory Buildings

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 24, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the addition of a new photo gallery on the company's corporate website, www.unicomining.com, showing recent progress of reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah, including completion of the relocation of the onsite laboratory and reconnection of power to the laboratory buildings.

The new photo gallery showing the progress of reconstruction work has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php.

The gallery includes a section with photographs of the onsite laboratory buildings being moved from the mine site to the area of the mill buildings. This move was undertaken to help increase efficiency of the mill operations and improve logistics at the site. The buildings were placed adjacent to the new concrete walkways and stairways that were recently poured to connect the laboratory to the main mill buildings.

Several pictures also show power being reconnected to the relocated laboratory buildings, which has allowed work in the buildings to resume.

Another section of the gallery shows the DC motors and DC speed controllers, which operate the belts that feed the ore into the mill, after they were installed and after the belts were tested. The frequency drives, which run the transfer belts that feed the fine ore bins, are also shown after they were installed and tested.

The gallery also shows the ball mill gear lubricating system, manufactured by Farval Lubrication Systems (http://www.farval.com/), which has come online in the main mill building.

The reconstruction of the mill and processing facility is being undertaken so that Unico's wholly owned mining subsidiary, Deer Trail Mining Company, Inc. can begin processing operations at the site. Above-ground stockpiles of material at the site is the immediate target of processing operations as additional future planned mining operations at the Deer Trail Mine are strategized.

"The new photo gallery that was added to our website shows important work that has been recently completed at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "The relocation of the onsite laboratory to the area of the mill buildings will improve the logistics at the site, and the work related to the ball mill will allow for additional testing in advance of the start-up of processing operations at the site. We are pleased to add these new pictures to the website and hope that shareholders find them to be helpful in tracking the progress of the Deer Trail Mine project."

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