JOHANNESBURG Oct 1 (Reuters) - Atlatsa Resources said on Monday workers have gone on an illegal strike at its Bokoni platinum mine in South Africa, the latest in a wave of wildcat walk-outs hitting the country's mining sector.

Bokoni is a joint venture with Anglo American Platinum , the world's top producer of the precious metal, which is already grappling with illegal strikes at four of its South African mines.
