Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Key Equipment Installed as Part of the Reconstruction of the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 6, 2006 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced that a new picture gallery showing recent reconstruction of the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah has been loaded to the company's website. The new photo gallery can be viewed at the "Media" section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com/news/othermedia.php.

The new photo gallery is comprised of several sections, each related to construction and the placement of equipment in the main mill building. Several of the pictures show the building of a structure that houses conveyors that run between the feed bins and the ball mill. Another section contains photographs of the completed ball mill and equipment for the mill's floatation circuit, including the Gallagher float cells installed above the ball mill. The Gallagher cells will be primary float cells for the lead and silver circuit. The Denver float cells, which work as cleaner cells to make the lead/silver concentrate a higher grade, can also be seen in place after being installed in the main mill building. One of the conditioner tanks, which is part of the floatation circuit, has been moved into place between the Denver float cells and ball mill.

"The placement of these key pieces of equipment is an important part of the mill reconstruction process, and we are pleased to provide these pictures for our shareholders and others who may be interested in our progress at the Deer Trail Mine," said Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "Completion of the mill and processing facility is a high priority, as is regular communication with our stockholders. We look forward to reporting further milestones and providing the media that shows each steps in reconstruction and improvement of the mill site."
