I will use this Thorax as a miner for a few weeks until my skills are ready for an Iteron Mark, so which is the best configuration.....?

5 Miner 2s, and the Co Pros necessary to make them fit. A shield booster might be a good idea, a MWD or at least an AB also helps. May need some Cap modules so you can maintain all 5 Miner 2s indefinately. If you've got extra low slots you can alway suse Cargo Expanders so you don't have to click and drag to the can as much. Drone Bay contents depend on your assets. If you've got Harvesters, use them, and use the remaining space for Heavy/Medium Drones. Thats about it.

yeah i would go for some cap relays and atleast 1 expander to make.
for empire mining in 0.5 and higher u could use harvy's (make sure u are on top of some roids to insta scoop them when rats show up) and use medium scout drones to figth the rats in 0.4 u better have 8 heavy's and no harvy's.

so basicly 5 miner II on high , mwd shield booster and med cap recharger on med , low as man cpu's needed 1 ce and rest filled up with cap relay's

The skill "Energy Systems Operation" at level 2+ seems to be enough to maintain 5 Miner IIs up and running constantly without any need for cap relays. That's a couple of slots you can use for other things, like more cargo expanders or nanofiber hulls to fly faster.

I run:

5 Miner II
2 Cap Recharger
1 Cap Power Relay
4 Co Pro I (waiting on skill for co-pro II)

I have: Energy systems operation III, Energy Management I and electronics IV. Don't expect to get away with skills less than that, as the MWD takes 25% outta your cap.
