Unico, Inc. Announces New Agreement for Additional Labor to Expedite Completion of Reconstruction at the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2007 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced an agreement with FMS, Inc. of Huntington Station, New York for additional labor to expedite completion of the mill and production facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah.

Under the new agreement, FMS, Inc. will provide a crew trained and experienced in all phases of construction whose primary responsibility will be to aid in the completion phase of mill reconstruction at the Deer Trail Mine. FMS is expected to arrive at the site during the week of April 16 and begin work in several designated areas of the mill facility, including construction of the new substation that will provide electrical power to the Deer Trail Mine, rain gutters and flashings on the new mill building, siding and insulation on the fine ore bins adjacent to the main mill building, and other areas of the site where its construction skills can be put to use.

FMS, Inc. was previously contracted by Deer Trail Mining Company, LLC to assist with the construction of the new mill building at the Deer Trail Mine in the fall of 2006. During that period, FMS helped to build the 50 by 100 foot building adjacent to the existing mill facility that will house the thickener and filtration for the facility. FMS worked on the foundation, cement footings, the steel frame, insulation, siding, doors, roof, and all other aspects of the structure.

"The agreement to bring in this additional labor from FMS, Inc. is an indication of our commitment to complete reconstruction of the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine and begin establishing revenues from processing operations as soon as possible," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "Our previous working relationship with FMS makes this crew an ideal addition to the workforce already at the Deer Trail Mine, and the crew's experience at the site last fall will allow them to begin work more quickly and efficiently than other contracted labor.

"Unico and its wholly owned subsidiary, Deer Trail Mining Company, Inc., are taking every possible measure to expedite the reconstruction process, and we will maintain that focus until all of the remaining work is completed," added Mr. Lopez.

Once the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine is completed and operational, the company expects to begin processing existing stockpiled material on the property and sell the concentrates to establish revenues.
