The Garman-class Gas Miner was an atmospheric mining craft used extensively by Lant Mining Corporation.[1]

More transport vessel than actual mining ship, the Garman acted as a close-orbit storage and support station for its complement of twenty GS-III Gas Skimmers.[1] Releasing the skimmers in the upper orbit of gas giants, the Garman stored the gasses collected by skimmers in its vast pressurized holds; once its holds were completely filled, the Garman would recall its skimmers and jump to one of the Lant Mining Corporations refineries to deposit its cargo and begin the process all over again.[1]
