Maybe its cheaper for big ore haulers to load up at the station to transport the ore elsewhere than it would be for them to land on the surface. I would assume landing expends more fuel, so you mine it on the surface, shuttle it up on small, cheap to run vessels, then process it in orbit and load it onto the big freighters there.

Forum Logic dictates that if the devs don't do what a poster wants, they therefor actively hate what that poster is advocating for.
Forum Logic =/= Real Logic
