Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Hydrocyclone Tests Conducted by Senior Metallurgist at the Deer Trail Mill and Processing Facility

Unico, Inc. Announces New Photo Gallery Showing Hydrocyclone Tests Conducted by Senior Metallurgist at the Deer Trail Mill and P

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 11/01/07 -- Unico, Incorporated (OTCBB: UCOI), a natural resource company in the precious metals mining sector, today announced that a new photo gallery showing testing of the Krebs hydrocyclone, which is used to classify ores after they have been ground through the ball mill in the Deer Trail mill and processing facility, has been added to the company's corporate website, www.unicomining.com. The hydrocyclone testing was conducted under the supervision of Edgar Blanco, senior metallurgist for Unico's wholly owned Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary, who can be seen in several pictures in the new gallery.

The new photo gallery showing the testing of the Krebs hydrocyclone has been added to the "Media" section of the Unico website at www.unicomining.com./news/othermedia.php.

Testing of the Krebs hydrocyclone was conducted to help determine the necessary operating parameters for the milling of ores in the facility. The hydrocyclone is a key piece of equipment, which conducts the size classification of the ore after it has been ground in the ball mill. The underflow, or material that is too coarse to progress to the next step in the processing circuit, will be cycled back to the ball mill to be reground, and the overflow, which is material that has been crushed to the appropriate size, will be sent to the conditioning tank prior to entering the floatation process.

Pictures in the new photo gallery show the tests, in which workflow rates of the hydrocyclone were observed by running ore samples containing 20%, 40% and 60% solids through the cyclone. The ore samples were mixed in a tank and pumped to the hydrocyclone. Samples of the underflow and overflow were taken to help determine the locations of the particle distribution and the percentage of solids that will be required to be pumped to the hydrocyclone during milling operations. By altering the percentage of solids being pumped to the hydrocyclone, the particle size in the underflow and overflow can be manipulated.

The ore that was used in the hydrocyclone testing was a composite comprised of ores found in various locations on the Deer Trail Mine property. Screened stockpiled material at the site is expected to be the most immediate target of processing operations at the Deer Trail mill facility once operations have been initiated. The ore samples were crushed, pulverized and placed into five gallon buckets under strict guidance of Mr. Blanco. The samples, which were prepared in the lab, simulated the finely ground product that will be generated in the ball mill during milling operations. Several of the pictures in the new gallery show the samples, which were brought into the mill in orange buckets, being used in the testing.

"Given the importance of the ongoing metallurgical testing work being conducted by Mr. Blanco, we are pleased to make this photo gallery available on our website for our shareholders to see firsthand," stated Mark A. Lopez, chief executive officer of Unico. "This is a significant step in preparation for the startup phase of processing operations at the Deer Trail mill facility and we are excited about the work being conducted on site at this time."

Unico recently completed the purchase of the Deer Trail Mine for its Deer Trail Mining Company subsidiary.

Shareholders who would like to sign up to receive information by email directly from Unico, Inc., including when new photo galleries are posted to the company website, are asked to visit the company's website at http://www.unicomining.com/IR/mailinglist.php and fill in the appropriate fields.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
The evolution of JavaScript and HTML 5 to support a genuine component based framework (Web Components) with the necessary tools to deliver something close to a native experience including genuine realtime networking (UDP using WebRTC).

The native level support will offer a massive performance boost to frameworks having to fake all...
As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority. Whether you are in Dev or Ops, understanding how to implement a DevOps strategy can deliver faster development cycles, improved software quality, reduced deployment times and overall better experiences for your customers.
This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
