Unico, Inc. Announces Recent Geological Work Conducted at the Deer Trail Mine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 29, 2007) - Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced that additional geological work is underway at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah.

The company has issued the following update on the recent geological work conducted at the Deer Trail Mine, which states:

"During the last 4 months, the objective of geologic work has been review of the previous database, familiarization with the structural and stratigraphic controls on mineralization, with the main focus being assembling an up-to-date database incorporating previous work, the recent Behre Dolbear study and ongoing sampling in the 3100-3400 area of the mine, particularly mineralized veins and mantos which occur at or above the PTH level that might provide mill feed at the lowest cost in the near future.

Prior to August, 2007, there were no assay plans or sections incorporating systematic chip channel sampling, drill hole intercepts, etc. on file on the property, the basic tools for graphically constructing ore reserve estimates. In addition, there are no systematic, usable figures for mineable widths or cutoff grades for various metal price scenarios. A program has been initiated to sample (in places possibly resample) all exposed mineralization in the 3100-3400 area with sufficient density to form the basis for an ore reserve estimate in the future. This includes careful sampling over measured widths, and sampling of adjacent low grade or waste to determine diluted grades and mineable widths. Some additional splitting and sampling of drill core has also been performed.

All samples are being sent to ALS Chemex in Vancouver, British Columbia for gold (Au), silver (Ag), lead (Pb), copper (Cu), and zinc (Zn) analyses, as well as a multi-element package for pathfinders that provide additional exploration tools, particularly in regard to the relationship between veins (feeders) and mantos in the Deer Trail deposits. The ultimate goal is to have a complete set of assay plans and cross-sections at 50 ft.(or less) intervals through the 3100-3400 area that will prove or disprove ore continuity and grade. To supplement this work, a close in longholing program is being designed to test for projected mineralization to the west and southwest of the 3100 area that might be explored and developed rapidly by drifting, if warranted.

Such a program is standard operating procedure, a fundamental part of any mine database. A similar program will need to be initiated for mineralization below the PTH level in this same area, and ultimately, for the entire mine, including the 8600 area. For the time being, all analyses will be performed by ALS Chemex, with all pulps being saved for later checking using in-house facilities, as part of a QC-QA program initiation."

"Continued geological work is an important aspect of the company's activities as we plan for future underground mining activities at the Deer Trail Mine," said Mark Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "We are pleased to have received this update on the initial geological study that has been conducted at the Deer Trail Mine and look forward to additional information regarding the property, including geological reports and assays, as it is developed."

In August 2007, Unico announced that it had completed the purchase of the Deer Trail Mine for its Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary.
