Rossland Aims to Attract Nomads 

(October 13, 2010) – Rossland, B.C.—The City of Rossland hopes to build on its frontier heritage by attracting modern-day prospectors, who troll the Internet for their 'nuggets'. These "Nomadic Entrepreneurs" may hold the key to building its business base, according to a report issued today by the Rossland Economic Development Task Force (EDTF). 

Rossland Mayor Greg Granstrom said: "Rossland has always attracted independent-minded people, from our foundation as a gold mining town to the present-day. I'm glad to see that tradition updated to entice Nomadic Entrepreneurs.”
