Unico, Inc. Announces Acquisition and Delivery of Crushing Plant at the Deer Trail Mine Site
Unico, Incorporated, a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, announced the acquisition and delivery of a crushing plant to the Deer Trail Mine site, which will be used to crush ore at the Deer Trail mill and processing facility in Marysvale, Utah.
A new photo gallery showing the delivery and installation of the crushing plant at the Deer trail Mine site is expected to be added to the Unico website, www.unicomining.com, in the next several days.
The 2007 Trio impact crushing plant has very low operating hours and 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 necessary electrical circuits are currently being installed with completion expected in the next several days.
“The purchase of a crushing plant for use at the Deer Trail mill and processing facility had been previously identified as a necessity for Unico and its Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary, and we are pleased that the acquisition and delivery of the crusher has now been completed,” commented Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico, Inc. “We look forward to completing the installation in the coming days, so that operation of the floatation circuit with the crusher as part of the process can be initiated. The crushing plant plays a vital role to improve operational efficiency and production by supplying feed to the mill facility once it has been mined.”
Unico, Inc. is a publicly traded natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector that is focused on the exploration, development and production of gold, silver, lead, zinc, and copper concentrates at its two mine properties: the Deer Trail Mine and the Silver Bell Mine.
