Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Completion of Connection to Electrical Substation at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today posted a new photo gallery on its corporate website,, which shows work related to the completion of the electrical connection to the new substation at the Deer Trail Mine that will supply power to the site.

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

A crew from PacifiCorp, the electrical utility that operates in Utah as Rocky Mountain Power, completed the interconnection between the existing Rocky Mountain Power substation and the new Deer Trail Mine substation over a two-day period.

Pictures in the new gallery show the work during the period when power to the Rocky Mountain Power substation was terminated so that the necessary maintenance and preparation work could be completed ahead of the interconnection between the two substations. There are also pictures of the work conducted the next day, when power to the site was again shut off and the interconnection was completed. The gallery also shows the power meter that was installed at the new substation before the interconnection.

With the necessary components in place and the interconnection completed, Unico's wholly owned subsidiary, Deer Trail Mining Company, now has the ability to bring the substation online by energizing the main transformer at the site.

The new substation, which was completed with the assistance of electrical contractor Cache Valley Electric, one of the largest electrical contractors in the western United States, will supply the 1.5 megawatts of power required to operate the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine. An additional 1 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.

"We are pleased to show the completed work related to the interconnection that brings power to the new electrical substation at the Deer Trail Mine, as it represents a significant advancement for our project at the site," said Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "We expect additional progress on the connections from the main substation to the Deer Trail mill and processing facility in the coming weeks, and we will provide future updates and add new media to the Unico website as soon as possible," added Mr. Lopez.

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