Deep-Miners are massive tracked Imperial vehicles, the size of hab-blocks, which are used to drill resources from beneath a world's surface.[1]

They were created before the rise of the Emperor, but are now used by the Imperium and each contain large clan populations. Those who live aboard them can live out their entire lives without ever leaving the vehicles and as a result a Deep-miner's population is very insular. They only need to make contact with Imperial authorities when the vehicles' tanks are full of resources, in order to trade for fresh food, clean water and other necessities. Due to their age and advanced technological construction, the Adeptus Mechanicus has asked that any Imperial forces invading a Deep-miner should try to do as little damage as possible to the remarkable vehicles.[1]
