Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Core Splitting and Logging Work on Samples From Underground Diamond Core Drilling Program at Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 15, 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 its website that shows the additional logging and splitting work conducted by Behre Dolbear and Company (USA), Inc. on core samples taken from the underground diamond core drilling program conducted at the Deer Trail Mine in 2005.

The new core logging and splitting photo gallery has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at

Behre Dolbear is a preeminent mining industry consultancy firm that is providing geological services at Unico's Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah. The new photographs show consulting geologist Alex Scarbrough, who was assigned to the project by Behre Dolbear, performing the core logging of the diamond core samples on site at the Deer Trail Mine and lab facility. There are also numerous pictures of the splitting work on the core samples.

The logged and spilt samples are subsequently bagged and tagged for shipping to ALS Chemex lab in North Vancouver, British Columbia for assay.

Unico has updated its previous reports on the core logging and splitting work, as well as additional analytical work undertaken by Behre Dolbear. Spreadsheets were set up to facilitate entry of sample intervals and assay results for the core samples. Behre Dolbear has also assembled electronic data to make plots of the core holes that have been logged and analyzed. The plots will include stratigraphy and lithology from the core logs and histograms of the gold (Au), silver (Ag), copper (Cu), lead (Pb), and zinc (Zn) analyses.

The work includes development of a worksheet combining all the ALS Chemex analyses from the holes that have been analyzed. Individual samples were composited into intervals based on the reported grades of gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc.

Behre Dolbear is also evaluating additional drilling data, maps, and reports received from Unico's wholly owned subsidiary, Deer Trail Mining Company.

"The photographs in the new gallery give our shareholders an opportunity to see the progress of Behre Dolbear's work on behalf of Unico," commented Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "Given the importance of this work as a part of moving our project at the Deer Trail Mine forward and determining the direction of future exploration and mining efforts, we are very excited to add yet another layer of information by posting these photographs."
