4 Mission Statement Money4Gold Holdings Inc. is targeting major production of gold, silver and platinum by facilitating the broad-scale recycling of jewelry, and other items containing precious metals in the U.S. and internationally. Believed to be the first public company in North America to focus on retail precious metals recycling, the Company offers shareholders and potential shareholders an opportunity to participate in a high-growth situation. 4.
5 Eight factors are working together that foster a one-time global opportunity for the right company in the right position to take full advantage of the current major trend toward recycling precious metals. Access to major capital markets for funding growth; High precious metals prices; A global economic downturn -- cash is king; 1. A direct relationship with one of North America's largest precious metals refiner (additional relationships in development in Europe, the Middle East and Asia); High payouts for sellers of jewelry, collectibles and other items with precious-metal content; Ease and security of transactions via the Internet; Management consisting of highly experienced marketers and successful start-up specialists; and Sales results beyond management's expectations thus far. There s just one company, now well advanced, that s acting to fill this large opportunity; Money4Gold Holdings Inc. Money4Gold, a public company since just late July this year, is facilitating recycling in the U.S. in all 50 states and in the District of Columbia. Perfecting marketing and fulfillment procedures now, the Company also plans first international sales within the year. 5..
6 Why Recycle Precious Metals? Gold, silver and platinum are all in strong long-term upmoves. All three metals sell for more than twice their price five years ago. Demand is far outpacing supply. Despite much higher prices, mine production of gold and platinum is actually declining. Mining is highly energy-intensive, capital-intensive, labor-intensive, cost-intensive, slow, environmentally hazardous and often a political minefield. Mined precious metals are in finite supply. While production of silver is rising marginally each year, both industrial and investment demand are rising faster. Recycling is the second-largest source of gold, silver and platinum supply. Because of supply imbalances, it is increasingly significant to the precious metals markets. Recycling accounts for 23% to 25% of the global supply of gold each year. In 2007, approx. 30 million ounces of gold came to market worldwide from recycling, an approx $20 billion annual market. Silver and platinum also have growing recycling markets. 6..
7 Why Recycle Precious Metals? (cont d) The increase of the recycling of precious metals is a powerful trend that most investors have not actually noticed. The recovery of gold by recycling has risen from 14 million ounces in 1997 to approx. 30 million ounces globally in Recycling of gold and other precious metals is doubly important in the U.S. In this country, recycling accounts for a little less than half of total supply, and has been rising for several years. By trend, more than 50% of U.S. precious metals production is anticipated to be from recycling within the next five years. Most recycling of precious metals comes from jewelry (83%), a vast and very basic market globally. Virtually all households have some gold and silver jewelry. And most people have not stopped to consider that, with the recent rises in gold and silver prices, these jewelry items have become very valuable, and can be quickly converted to cash. A recession-resistant business This is a counter-cyclical business in which the volume of recycling increases when the economy worsens. 7..
8 The New World of Recycling Gold, Silver and Platinum The Internet is changing the way individuals and groups recycle their precious metals items. People used to go to their local jeweler or pawn shop and many still do -- and take what they could get, usually a minor percent of the real value of the precious-metal content. While this is still done, several companies now aggregate precious metals items for recycling by marketing their services on the Internet. This may offer a little better deal for the jewelry seller, but he is still dealing with an aggregator, a middle-man. 8..
9 The New World of Recycling (cont d) Money4Gold also uses the Internet, which adds to the convenience, security and direct communication with the seller. But it is the only recycler with a direct relationship with a major refinery, with Republic Metals Corporation, one of the largest refiners of precious metals in the U.S. Republic is a major shareholder of Money4Gold, and has representation on the Board. With the precious-metals sellers shipping their items directly to Republic, Money4Gold is by-passing the middle-man, and can offer top payouts to sellers. 9..

March 5, The Wall Street Journal, 10..

Functions including: assessment of customer materials, assaying, warehousing, refining, and selling. 21..
22 Market Competition Although Gold buying has been a trade for centuries, this method of soliciting customers is relatively new. Traditionally, it has been independent jewelry stores or pawn shops that buy materials directly from the public. They, in turn, sell to an aggregator who also, in turn, sells to the refinery. This business model eliminates the intermediaries who take the majority of the margin. With Dollars4Gold, the consumer eliminates the middle-man and deals directly with the refinery! 22..
23 Market Competition Three primary competitors in this space; Cash4Gold, BrokenGold and GoldKit. Cash4Gold is affiliated with a secondary refiner that is a client of our refining partner. Because they utilize our refining partner as their provider, they can not have the margins that we have. We are projecting revenues of over 40 million dollars next year. said Jeff Aronson, CEO of Albar/Cash4Gold. As quoted from an article published on the company s website, dated Feb 28 th, This is after launching the site just over 1 year ago. Dollars4Gold will be staged to take advantage of these explosive growth trends. BrokenGold does not have an affiliation with a refinery. They are strictly an online marketing firm that purchases gold from the public and sells to a refinery. They are unable to capitalize on the full margin between scrap and refined price. GoldKit is affiliated with Lippincott, LLC, which has been buying Gold and scrap precious metals since They have an established history in traditional gold buying and some direct marketing but that is not their strength. Lippincott does not have an affiliation with a refinery. They are unable to capitalize on the full margin between scrap and refined price. Dollars4Gold s relationship with Republic Metals enables it to retain the largest margin and provide the highest payouts because Dollars4Gold is the only participant in this space with a direct relationship to a primary refinery and only participant that receives its materials directly into the refinery. Our customer s items make their first and only stop at Dollars4Gold. Dollars4Gold s relationship with Republic Metals further enables it to operate more efficiently, as all the receiving, assaying and refining functions are done in one facility, whereas the competitors need to send their materials out in order to be refined. 23..
24 Market Competition Dollars4Gold has an additional competitive edge not considered by the others, in that Dollars4Gold is postured to replicate their business model globally in other markets through its international marketing network connections, and its local currency mirror sites. (Pounds4Gold, Euros4Gold, Yen4Gold, etc.) The United States represents only 10% of the world s gold demand. 24..
25 Market Competition Money4Gold is Postured to Replicate its Business Model Internationally Gold refineries have been struggling to keep up with demand as gold prices soared over the past months. "This year, scrap sales would be 20 percent higher," said Harmesh Arora, vice president of Bombay Bullion Association who also has a gold refining and trading business. - Reuters, April 7,
