Unico, Inc. Announces Completion of Core Splitting and Logging and Additional Reporting on Samples From Underground Diamond Core Drilling Program at Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 26, 2007 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced that Behre Dolbear and Company (USA), Inc., a preeminent mining industry consultancy firm that is providing geological services at Unico's Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah, has completed its logging and splitting work on core samples taken from the underground diamond core drilling program conducted at the Deer Trail Mine in 2005.

The final core samples have been bagged and tagged under the supervision of Behre Dolbear's consulting geologist Alex Scarbrough and shipped to the ALS Chemex lab in North Vancouver, British Columbia for assay. A Final Summary Report will be completed and submitted to Unico by Behre Dolbear.

Photographs of the bagged and tagged samples have been added to the core logging and splitting photo gallery on Unico's website at

In the final round of core logging and splitting work, sample intervals were logged from the following holes UDDH #8, 0-565 feet UDDH #10, 0-459 feet, UDDH #6, 0-409 feet, and UDDH #2, 0-654 feet. Sample numbers, sample intervals, and lithologic and mineralogic descriptions were entered into the spreadsheet templates for the logged holes. In addition, sample intervals were marked on previously logged UDDH #4 in preparation for splitting.

A total of 298 samples encompassing 863 feet of core from six holes (UDDH #2, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 10) were shipped from Richfield, Utah to ALS Chemex in North Vancouver, B.C. Behre Dolbear supervised the splitting, participated in the tagging and bagging, prepared the sample submittal sheets, and shipped the samples.

Behre Dolbear also completed the following tasks while the core splitting was being completed: 1) Tabulated bedding angles to core axes for composited intervals in holes UDDH #1, 3, 5, 9, 11, 12, and 13 for calculation of true thicknesses; 2) Revised stratigraphic nomenclature and edited text describing stratigraphy for a report; and 3) Assembled data and began drafting geology and history of the Marysvale District and the Upper and Lower Deer Trail Mines, including production and grade of the latter, for a report.

Behre Dolbear will draft a complete report on the logging and analytical results of the thirteen Deer Trail holes when the analyses from the six holes conducted by ALS Chemex are received and evaluated.

"We are pleased that the final shipment of core samples have been sent to ALS Chemex for assay and look forward to the Final Summary Report from Behre Dolbear," commented Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "The information in the Final Summary Report is expected to assist in our efforts to broaden our exploration plans and establish new paths for future mining potential at the Deer Trail Mine, and we await the additional reporting and analysis.
