Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Further Reconstruction Work at the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 16, 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 further progress of reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah.

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

The gallery shows photographs of the vacuum pumps that have been installed in the new mill building and used for the Eimco filter. Photographs also show the filtrate tanks used to collect the wastewater from the Eimco filter as well as the piping required to operate the filter and vacuums, which are now in place and prepared for their final electrical connections.

Pictures in the new gallery also show the piping that has been installed to carry the tailings to the thickener and the piping that will carry the recycled water throughout the mill.

The onsite laboratory is being moved from the mine site to the area of the mill buildings to help increase the efficiency of the mill operations and improve logistics at the site. The new photo gallery shows concrete walkways that have been poured and will be used to connect the laboratory to the mill buildings.

Additional pictures showing new belting and rollers installed on the fine ore feed conveyors will be added to the gallery in the next several days, as will photographs of the DC motors and DC speed controllers, which operate the belts that feed the ore into the mill. The motors and speed controllers have been delivered and are currently being installed.

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 shows the continued progress of reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "We are pleased to add these photographs to our website, so shareholders can see the work that was described in our most recent press release regarding the reconstruction program at the Deer Trail mill facility."

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