Lots of money changes feelings fast.
Well, the Kelvins would be a likely source for any improvements in warp technology, shield technology and advanced materials. That'd be worth some money.

Plus, galactic invasion averted!
Yeah, but the miners would be the direct and indirect beneficiaries of the Horta's digging. Kirk and crew, not so much from tech improvements by the Kelvans.
The Enterprise is a whole lot faster than before. That's an immediate benefit. But going back to the miners, the Horta did kill 50 men. It's more shocking that they became all chummy at the end given that they were probably a tight-knit community. In Starfleet, you're expected to give your life in the line of duty but it might've been more personal with the miners.
