Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Construction Work Completed Since the Arrival of FMS, Inc. at the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the posting of a new photo gallery on the company's website that shows construction work completed at the mill and production facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah, since the arrival of the construction crew from FMS, Inc.

FMS, Inc., of Huntington Station, New York, was contracted to provide construction services at the Deer Trail Mine in order to expedite completion of the mill and production facility at the site.

The photo gallery has been posted in the Media section of the website at http://www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php and includes pictures of work on the structure around the fine ore bins adjacent to the main mill building and a gallery building connecting the fine ore bins structure with the main mill building.

The FMS, Inc. crew, which is trained and experienced in all phases of construction, arrived on site last week and immediately began work on the fine ore bins adjacent to the main mill building. The photographs show the perlins installed on the sides of the fine ore bins, siding to cover the bins and insulation on the interior walls. There are close-up pictures of the siding and the flashing has been installed to cover corners and gaps and will prevent leaking into the building.

Included in the pictures are several of the construction of the gallery building that runs between the fine ore bin building and the main mill building, which houses the ball mill and floatation system. The roof has been installed as well as siding, insulation, and flashing. The building has been made weather-tight, so the facility can operate virtually year-round.

"The new photographs posted to our website show how quickly the crew from FMS, Inc. has had an impact on the pace of reconstruction work at the Deer Trail Mine," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "We are very pleased to see the work that has already been completed on the structure around the fine ore bins and on the gallery building. We also look forward to the additional work FMS, Inc. will be conducting at the mill and processing facility as well as other areas of the site.

"Among the other areas of our construction work, the FMS, Inc. crew will also be assisting with tasks related to the electrical substation that will provide power to the Deer Trail Mine. We expect to provide additional updates on all facets of the reconstruction activities at the Deer Trail Mine in the coming weeks," added Mr. Lopez.
