SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 21, 2007 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the posting of a new photo gallery showing recent reconstruction work in the completion phase of the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah.

The Deer Trail Mine is operated by Unico, Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Deer Trail Mining Company, Inc.

In the gallery, there are several pictures showing the pouring of the final three sections of the concrete floor in the new mill building, which will house the filtration and thickener. With the flooring complete, work in the new building will now focus on completion of the thickener and its surrounding structures.

The gallery also shows the motor control panel that powers the flotation cells and pumps in the main mill building. There are pictures of the first conduit that runs from the control panel. Electrical work in the building is being prepared in anticipation of the completion of the new electrical substation, which is being constructed to power the mill and other mining activities at the Deer Trail Mine. Preparation of the ground for the new substation is also shown. In the pictures of the ground preparation, the existing adjacent substation that will provide the connection to the new substation can be seen in the background.

A section of the gallery shows the ladders that have been installed to allow access to the upper deck of the fine ore bin. There are several pictures of the assembly of the supports for the 120-ft peerless stacking conveyor and the final supports for the long feed conveyor to the fine ore bin. Workers pouring concrete for the support foundation of the catwalk between the old and new mill buildings is also pictured.

There are also several pictures in the gallery that show the delivery of the lighting and electrical circuit panels for the new mill building. These will also be prepared for connection once the new substation is constructed and operational.

"The reconstruction of the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine continues to move forward through the completion phase, and we are pleased with the recent work that is shown in this new photo gallery," said Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "The gallery shows the various areas where we have seen progress, and over the next several weeks, we expect to continue to see a number of additional significant tasks completed in both major mill buildings, outside where conveyors are located, and in the location of the new electrical substation.
