I just finished playing Mass Effect 1 and completed and now am restarting it to finish up to level 60.

I noticed that the entire journal is emptied out meaning that I have to, sadly, recollect all the extras from the assignment missions.

Before I start grinding through the game for a second time, is there any benefit to completing these missions when transferring the save to Mass Effect 2?

Looking at the Mass Effect Wiki, it doesn't appear that any bonuses are granted for finishing with a large amount of resources. It looks like the only attributes that are considered are your level and the Rich achievement, if you obtained that.
