Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Recent Reconstruction on Deer Trail Mill and Processing Facility

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 28, 2006 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the addition of a new photo gallery on its corporate website showing recent progress of the reconstruction of the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah.

The reconstruction photo gallery has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com and is housed in the "Multimedia" section. Among the pictures in this gallery are several showing the placement of new ore hopper bins and fine ore bins on their concrete foundations, and the positioning of conveyers that feed material from the feed bin to the fine ore bin.

The ore hopper bins shown in the new photographs will feed conveyor belts that lead to the ball mill. A 100-ton crane was used to hoist the hoppers and the tank into place on their concrete foundations, and additional photographs show this work as it was undertaken. The gallery also shows the crane positioning of the leg supports and conveyers that lead to the fine ore bin.

"We are pleased to add these new photographs to the Unico website and provide for our shareholders greater detail on how the reconstruction is progressing," said Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of the company. "The operation of the mill and processing facility is an important element of Unico's strategy to bring additional value to our shareholders through the development of its subsidiary mining properties, so we will continue to provide updates and add photographs and video to our website whenever possible."
