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

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 1, 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 showing recent reconstruction of the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah. The photographs include newly installed equipment, as well as preparation of the flooring, foundations and footings for the equipment.

The new reconstruction photo gallery has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at

The photographs show numerous pieces of equipment that have been installed in the main mill building. Included in the pictures is the installed constant density tank for feeding the hydrocyclone, which will be used to classify ores. Also pictured are the primary conditioning tanks used to treat the ores before going to floatation. In addition, the gallery shows the secondary conditioner tank, which will be used to separate the zinc from the gold, silver and lead concentrate.

There are several pictures of continued progress in the new mill building, including the pouring of the cement flooring and assembly of the footings for the WesTech 40-foot thickener, which will be primarily used to thicken tailings. Photographs show the preparation to the floor area of the new mill building when it was tamped and lined with bentonite, and as the cement foundation was poured. Also for the new building, the gallery shows the company unloading steel for the mezzanine, which will be built above the thickener.

"We are pleased to show our recent progress on the installation of equipment at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine with this new photo gallery," said Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "There were significant strides made over the last several weeks, particularly in the delivery and placement of equipment, and we hope that through the addition of these photographs, our shareholders will gain a better understanding of how the reconstruction is progressing through the completion phase and how the overall project is coming together out at the Deer Trail."
