Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Further Progress of Reconstruction Work at the Mill and Processing Facility at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - August 24, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced that it has added a new photo gallery to its website, which shows the progress of recent reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah.

The new reconstruction photo gallery has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php.

The vacuum pumps used for the Eimco filter that have been delivered to the Deer Trail Mine site are shown in the new photo gallery, as are the filtrate tanks and filtrate pumps that will be used to collect the water that passes through the filter sectors from the mill tailings and floatation concentrate. The filtrate tanks are currently being installed, and the vacuums will be installed immediately thereafter.

The gallery also includes photographs of the piping for the mill, which was purchased through Isco Industries (http://www.isco-pipe.com/default.asp) of Salt Lake City, Utah and has been delivered to the site. Installation of the piping is underway and installed sections that will be used to transport the tailings from the secondary flotation cells to the thickener are also shown in the gallery.

Pictures in the new gallery show the installation of the filter sectors on the Eimco filter, which is currently underway. All the final adjustments necessary for the Eimco filter to operate are being made.

Installation of the main water lines that will be used for the overflow of the thickener is pictured in the gallery. The water lines will allow the Deer Trail Mining Company to recycle the majority of the water used in the floatation process, and the recycled water will be distributed throughout the mill for make-up water in the process stream. Photographs also show that the final coat of Vulcanizing rubber waterproofing has been applied to the thickener. The thickener is now ready to be leak tested.

"Our visit to the Deer Trail Mine this week allowed us to view much of the recently completed reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility firsthand, and we are pleased to see how this project is coming together," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "There has been significant progress since our last visit to the site, and we look forward to seeing the remainder of the work completed and processing operations initiated, especially now that the Deer Trail Mine has been purchased for our wholly owned Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary."
