Unico, Inc. Announces Website Changes With Video Archive and Additional Planned Upgrades

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 21, 2006 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced several changes to its website, including a new website address, www.unicomining.com, and the addition of a new video archive section where the company will upload video of activities from its subsidiary mine properties. To open the video section, which can be found at in the "Media" section under "Multimedia," Unico has added a short video featuring Unico president Wayne Ash discussing the results of the Phase I reverse circulation program in 2004.

The Unico website is currently still found at the www.uncn.com address, but as changes and upgrades are made, the entire site will be housed under the new address. Visitors who type in either address will be directed to the Unico site.

"We felt it important that as Unico continues to develop into a multifaceted natural resource company with various operations in numerous subsidiaries, a more appropriate website address was in order, and the recent change in Unico's stock symbol made the new address even more necessary," said chief executive officer Mark A. Lopez. "As our shareholders are well aware, we are completing reconstruction of the mill and processing facility at the Deer Trail Mine in anticipation of processing a significant supply of stockpiled material at the Deer Trail. Additionally, we have recently entered into a letter of intent to begin mining at Unico's Silver Bell subsidiary, which is expected to supply even more material to be processed at the Deer Trail facility. Beyond securing a steady supply of feed material for the mill, assay work continues on the core samples from the Phase II underground diamond core drilling program conducted in 2005. The results of this analysis are expected to direct future anticipated drilling and resource definition programs at the Deer Trail Mine. The recent acquisitions of the Clyde and Crown Point mineral claims add another facet to the company's subsidiary operations.

"While written information from press releases and other material issued by the company will provide details of each of these areas of Unico's business, the continued addition of photographs and video will help the company paint an even more vivid picture for Unico shareholders. Beyond ongoing new media additions, Unico will be undertaking comprehensive website upgrades to more accurately reflect the company's expected future status in the mining industry," stated Mr. Lopez.

The first video loaded on the website was created at the end of the Phase I reverse circulation drilling program undertaken at the Deer Trail Mine in 2004. Unico expects to add other archival video and photographs, as well as newly recorded media as activities at the Deer Trail Mine and its other subsidiaries are continued and expand in the coming quarters. Depending on the operating systems and programs utilized, the video clip may run more smoothly once the file is completely downloaded.

"We hope all shareholders will be able to view this new feature and our future videos, and that all of the media we load to our website will add to their understanding of how Unico's operations are moving forward," added Mr. Lopez.

Shareholders who would like to sign up to receive information by email directly from Unico, Inc., particularly when new press releases, SEC filings or other information is disclosed, are asked to visit the company's website at www.uncn.com/IR/mailinglist.asp.
