Unico, Inc. Announces a New Photo Gallery Showing Delivery and Progress of Installation of Crushing Plant to the Deer Trail Mine Site
Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UNCO), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced the addition of a new photo gallery to its corporate website, www.unicomining.com, which shows a newly acquired crushing plant being delivered and installed at the Deer Trail Mine site in Marysvale, Utah. The crushing plant will be used to crush ore at the Deer Trail mill and processing facility.
The new photo gallery has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php.
In the new photo gallery are numerous photographs of the 2007 Trio impact crushing plant after it was delivered to the Deer Trail site. The crusher was purchased after a successful demonstration was conducted for management of Unico, Inc. and its wholly owned Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary. A 15-ton ore sample from the Deer Trail Mine was used for the demonstration. The ore was fed into the vibratory feeder and then on to the impact crusher. After the initial pass through the crusher, the ore was then put across a double deck classification screen with the remaining oversize returning back to be further reduced in size.
An added benefit of the impact crusher for use at the Deer Trail mill and processing facility is that it works as a standalone primary and secondary crusher reducing the overall purchase price and maintenance of conventional jaw and cone crushing plants. After the successful demonstration, the Trio crushing plant was delivered to the Deer Trail mill site.
The photo gallery also shows electrical circuits necessary for operation of the crushing plant being installed. Completion of the installation and connections is expected in the next several days.
"This new photo gallery provides a detailed look at the recently purchased crushing plant that is currently being installed for use at the Deer Trail mill and processing facility," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. "This is an important addition that will improve operational efficiency and production at the mill facility. We will continue to provide multimedia, including photographs and video clips, at every opportunity so that our shareholders can monitor the progress of our project at the Deer Trail Mine."
