Unico, Inc. Announces Additional Reconstruction Work at the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine Including Relocation of Laboratory Buildings

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced additional progress of reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah, including completion of the relocation of the onsite laboratory and reconnection of power to the laboratory buildings.

A new photo gallery showing the reconstruction work is expected to be added to the Media section Unico website,, in the next several days.

The onsite laboratory buildings were 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. Concrete walkways and stairways were poured to connect the laboratory to the main mill buildings. Power was reconnected to the relocated laboratory buildings and work in the buildings has resumed.

The DC motors and DC speed controllers, which operate the belts that feed the ore into the mill, have been installed and the belts have been tested. The frequency drives, which run the transfer belts that feed the fine ore bins, have been installed and tested.

The ball mill feed belts have been powered up, and the feed belt scale is being calibrated. The ball mill gear lubricating system, manufactured by Farval Lubrication Systems (, is expected to come online this week.

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.

"By relocating the onsite laboratory to the area of the mill buildings at the Deer Trail Mine, we expect to improve the logistics at the site, including the lab work and testing of feed material for the mill and processing facility currently being conducted under the supervision of our senior metallurgist, Edgar Blanco," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "We are pleased that the laboratory relocation is complete and that power has been reestablished to the buildings. We look forward to completion of the remaining reconstruction work at the site so that processing operations can be initiated at the mill and processing facility."
