Unico, Inc. Announces the Addition of a New Photo Gallery Showing the Recent Progress of Reconstruction Work at the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 19, 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,, showing recent progress of reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah including construction of an addition that more than doubles the size of the onsite laboratory.

The new photo gallery showing the reconstruction work has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at

Included in the new gallery are pictures of the new Mitsubishi variable frequency drive (VFD) that has been installed to replace the General Electric synchronous motor controller. The new variable frequency drive will allow Deer Trail Mining Company's metallurgist Edgar Blanco to adjust the speed of the mill to help optimize the rate of which each ore can be ground. A dramatic power savings is expected by installing the variable frequency drive, as it adjusts the outgoing frequency and voltage during starting and stopping of the ball mill.

The Mitsubishi variable frequency drive is fully computer integrated, allowing all of the perimeters including horsepower, amperage and revolutions per minute to be monitored and adjusted at any given time from a centralized computer located in the mill control room.

Both the motor and variable frequency drive were initially started up and programmed by Energy Management Corporation ( of Salt Lake City.

Also included in the new photo gallery is the construction of a laboratory addition that more than doubles the size of the laboratory in order to meet the expanding need for onsite analysis for both underground activities and operations at the mill facility. In addition to the analytical work, the laboratory is being used for the preparation of samples for start-up testing at the mill. Several pictures in the gallery show concrete walkways leading from the mill to the laboratory that have been completed. This will allow safe travel during the winter months for the laboratory personal while they are sampling and making adjustments in the mill.

The metal exterior of the mill buildings that is now completely coated with textured elastomeric paint to protect the exterior of the buildings from the elements and help to minimize future maintenance is also shown in a section of the new photo gallery.

"We are pleased to add this new photo gallery to the Unico website so that shareholders can follow the progress of reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility, including the recent addition to the onsite laboratory building," said Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "Ongoing analysis of material from both underground activities and operations at the mill facility will continue to play an important role as the project at the Deer Trail Mine is developed.

"We look forward to maintaining consistent lines of communication with shareholders as processing and mining operations are initiated at the site, and the addition of new photo galleries is also an important aspect of keeping our shareholders informed," Mr. Lopez added.

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