As above, makes for easier transfer of the processed ore to transport ships, rather than risking processed ore in atmospheric flights, also reduces the risk of resistance attacks on a ground facility, but also, it's part of the Cardassian psychology to want to overlook their underlings (ie why the station commander's office is at a higher level than the rest of Ops, where Picard's ready room was on the same level as the rest of the bridge...)
