Unico, Inc. Announces Energizing of Electrical Power Substations at the Deer Trail Mine

Power Now Available Inside Mill and Processing Facility

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the energizing of the main electrical substation, the secondary electrical substation and the distribution panels inside the mill and production facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah. As a result of the recent electrical work at the site, electrical power is now available inside both mill buildings at the site.

The main substation supplies the 1.5 megawatts of power required to operate the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine. The completed secondary substation reduces the voltage from 12,470 volts to the 480 volts needed to operate the mill facility.

Equipment inside the mill buildings that run on 208 volts or 120 volts are now powered and the company is starting to power up the 480-volt equipment. With power from the substations secured, generator power is no longer required to run equipment inside the mill buildings. In addition to powering equipment inside the facility, the lighting inside both mill buildings has been powered and is currently operating.

Energizing of the substations 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.

"Energizing the main and secondary substations, which allows for the flow of electricity into the mill buildings, is a significant milestone for our project at the Deer Trail Mine," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "The power supplied by the substation will be used for processing operations at the mill, as well as for potential future mining activities at the Deer Trail property and other Unico claims in the area. We look forward to completing the remaining electrical work inside the mill buildings so that all of the equipment in the facility can be powered by the electrical system that is now in place."

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