Unico, Inc. Issues October 2007 Investor Newsletter Highlighting Initial Underground Work at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 8, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today issued its October 2007 investor newsletter, which highlights the initial underground mine maintenance work including portal and stope rehabilitation conducted by Atlas Fausett Contracting at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah. Atlas Fausett Contracting, a division of Atlas Mining Company (www.atlasmining.com), is contracted to conduct initial underground maintenance work including the replacement of timber sets, cleanup of the main haulage way and installation of ground support where needed.

A PDF version of the newsletter has been added to the company's website at http://www.unicomining.com./news/newsletters.php, and an email notification of the newsletter's release has been sent to subscribers to the Unico electronic mailing list.

In addition to the lead article on the work by Atlas Fausett Contracting, the newsletter includes an article related to the completion of the main substation at the Deer Trail Mine. The main substation will supply the 1.5 megawatts of power required to operate the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine. An additional megawatt of excess power capacity is available for future upgrades to the system, including power for mining activities at the Deer Trail property and other Unico claims in the area. The article also reviews the completed interconnection between the main substation and the secondary substation at the site.

The newsletter also reviews the progress of onsite metallurgical activity at the Deer Trail Mine, including lab work and testing of the above-ground material located on the property that can be used as immediate feed for the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine.

Each of the articles include several pictures, which are also included in photo galleries posted to the Unico website at http://www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php.

"The October 2007 newsletter issue provides updates on two main areas of focus at the Deer Trail Mine, now that we have completed the purchase of this property," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "While we continue to prepare for the initiation of processing operations at the Deer Trail Mine once all reconstruction, electrical connections, testing and other work is completed, we are concurrently beginning the work that will pave the way for future underground activity at the site. The re-opening of the PTH Tunnel and rehabilitation work conducted by Atlas Fausett Contracting is an important step, and we will continue to support efforts in both of these important areas."

"The newsletter provides an opportunity to review this recent work, and we hope that shareholders enjoy reading this publication," Mr. Lopez added.
