From the Examiner article here.
Did anyone watch it last night? Hearing the tommyknockers freaked me the fuck out! And the black blob in the laser net. WHAAAAT? WAS THAT?
"The show centers around a mine in Oregon that was one of the richest in the country, but was abandoned 80 years ago after a series of tragedies. The new owner who reopened the mine is already on his second crew after the first went "tramping," which is to say, got the heck out of there. So a couple of paranormal investigators are called in to see what is going on. Paranormal investigators Patrick Doyle and Kristen Luman not only face the mine dangers, but also the surprisingly superstitious miners, who are less than thrilled with their presence. The miners do tolerate the ghost hunters, however, because they're really worried about the mine ghosts, or 'tommyknockers.' "

During the course of this first episode, it's revealed most of these guys are pretty down on their luck, and took this job out of desperation. But even that wasn't enough to keep one old-timer around, as he said he'd had enough after being spooked by a tommyknocker.
