I just played from the start again and I noticed that the portable miner was mining at a rate of 1/second or 60/min, when I upgraded to the Miner Mk1 the mining rate went down to 30/min.

Since the portable miner is inside and presumably the Miner Mk1 is higher tech (bigger drill etc) it doesn't seem to make much sense for this to be the case, I'd expect the portable miner to be equal or worse.

Not on all nodes tho

Let me explain: the protable miner ALWAYS has 60 items/min no matter the node. But the big automatable miner is 30/60/120 items/min. The number of items you get depends on the node of ore you put it on - there are 3: impure(30)/normal(60)/pure(120).

But in any case the big miner is istill better than the porable one because of automation.
