Unico, Inc. Announces Completion of Secondary Substation at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the completion of the secondary electrical substation at the Deer Trail Mine that will supply power to the mill and processing facility. With the secondary substation complete and the connection from the main electrical substation established, power will be available inside the mill buildings once the main substation is energized.

A new photo gallery showing the completed secondary substation at the Deer Trail Mine is expected to be added to the Media section of the Unico website, http://www.unicomining.com, in the next several days.

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 completion of the secondary substation included the wiring of all components and connections to the two main distribution panels that feed the motor control centers throughout the 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 (www.cve.com), one of the largest electrical contractors in the western United States.

"The completion of the secondary substation is yet another important step in establishing all electrical connections necessary at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "We will continue to focus on the last remaining wiring and connection work until power is available to begin processing operations at the facility."

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