Looked around a bit, but don't understand what Edel, Stein & Reich means. Is it the name of a mining company?

Your question has been answered but, just for the record, an underated game in my view. Good gamplay, nice components, easy set up .

To give a bit of further info in addition to the correct translation of Bas (thanks, Bas!):

"Reich" with a capital "R" also means "Realm" or "Kingdom", in this case probably both meanings are intended.
"Edel" can also be understood as "chivalrous" (a noble=person would be "Edler", but "edel" can also be the adjective version of "noble")

"Steinreich" in German means "filthy rich" (literally "rich as a stone"), so that is a further association that the title evokes.
Actually quite a clever title!

Aah, nice!

Should've known: in Dutch we have steenrijk and edelsteen.
