Unico, Inc. Announces Addition of New Photo Gallery Showing Recent Progress of Underground Rehabilitation Work at the Deer Trail Mineadmin
Unico, Incorporated, a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, announced that a new photo gallery has been added to its corporate website, www.unicomining.com, which includes pictures showing the progress of additional underground rehabilitation work at the Deer Trail Mine in Marysvale, Utah.
The new gallery shows work undertaken by the company’s wholly owned Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary including upgrades to the mine’s electrical system and recently purchased and reconditioned mine equipment.
The new photo gallery, which has been divided into two subsections, has been added to the “Media” section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php.
Upgrades and repairs to the mine’s high voltage electrical system have been undertaken and a section of the photo gallery is devoted to the electrical system work. The old electrical cable into the mine’s escape raise has been replaced. The work also included the installation of a new grounding system, a new switch gear used to isolate the mine power in the event of an emergency and approximately 1,000 feet of new high-voltage cable. Several minor repairs were also made to the 480-volt electrical system that is used to power machinery in the 3400 area of the mine.
The gallery also shows a second battery-operated locomotive, which has been repaired and commissioned for secondary service on the PTH level. Until recently, only one battery-operated locomotive was available for hauling ore to surface from the 3400 area. Due to the availability of a second locomotive, several ore cars are presently being repaired and upgraded, which drastically increases the daily minable tonnages. Ten additional ore cars have been located and are expected to be purchased for use at the Deer Trail Mine.
“As we complete additional work at the Deer Trail Mine, new photo galleries and possibly video clips will be added to our website so Unico shareholders can see our progress firsthand,” commented Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. “We expect future updates from the Deer Trail site, including ongoing activity at the Deer Trail mill and processing facility as well as additional underground progress at the mine.”
