The Asteroid class Workboat is dedicated to mining operations or cargo movement in system.  The vessel can operate for 8 weeks and has a .1dt safe in the captains stateroom and a .25dt storage locker. It is a cramp vessel wich contains 2 stateroom and 4 crew members. 
Mining operations usually carry a (2.5Mcr, 5dt) of mining equipment and an air/raft in cargo. The power plant can also handle a portable, second mining laser.  An (1dt, 1Mcr)  external tow arm is attached to a second hardpoint.

These boats are extremely common throughout the Imperium.
