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

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2007 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the addition of a new photo gallery on the company's website, www.unicomining.com, which shows recent progress of reconstruction work at the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah. The gallery can be found by visiting the "Multimedia" section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php.

Included in the new gallery are photographs of the delivery of recently purchased electrical panels and the Genie articulating man-lift with a 60-foot reach that will be used in the construction of the fine ore bin upper deck and other high structures at the site. Four electrical control panels and one switching center with a stop/start motor control center (MCC) were delivered. The pre-assembled two-sided control panels are expected to expedite installation and reduce time and labor requirements. Now that the panels have arrived on site, they will be wired and connected to supply power to pumps and other key equipment in the mill and processing facility.

The filter bags used for the Eimco filter in the new mill building are also shown in the gallery. The filter bags were ordered from National Filter Media of Salt Lake City, Utah, and there are several pictures showing the filter bags installed on the filter sectors. With installation of the filter bags on the filter sectors now completed, the filter sectors are expected to be installed on the Eimco filter within the next week.

The new photo gallery also shows the installed cross braces that support the upper mezzanine floor plate and the floor plating that was recently installed. There are several pictures of the installed steel supports for the upper concrete floor above the conveyor pump slot.

In preparation for the delivery of new screens for the screening plant that were ordered from Kimball Equipment (http://www.kimballequipment.com/) of Salt Lake City, a significant amount of time and effort has been spent servicing the Cat Loader and hard-facing the Loader bucket and the Case Excavator bucket. The photo gallery shows the hard facing that has been completed.

"This is one of the largest photo galleries, in terms of the number of pictures, that we have added to our website since we launched the Multimedia section of the site," said Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "Unico management considers the photo galleries an important communications tool for the company, and this gallery again shows that there is a significant amount of work being done in a variety of areas at the Deer Trail Mine property. We anticipate additional pictures of further reconstruction progress in the coming weeks as the Deer Trail Mining Company moves closer to completion of the facility and the start-up of processing operations."
