Anyone else thrown off by the name a little?
Is it a play off "gold rush" and "go west"?
And why is copper the higher valued metal when the name is Gold West?
Things that make you go "Hmm..."
I don't know what Alex Kevern intended, but the name is reminiscent of two things:
"Old West" & "Go West"
Copper is not the most valuable resource, Gold is.
