JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Canadian mining company Atlatsa Resources ATL.V (ATLJ.J: Quote) has obtained a court order to prevent wildcat strikers from protesting at its Bakoni mine in South Africa, it said on Tuesday.

The strike at firm's platinum mine, which it co-owns with Anglo American Platinum (AMSJ.J: Quote), started on Monday.

A wave of illegal mine strikes has roiled Africa's biggest economy despite the end of a bloody six-week stoppage at another platinum producer, Lonmin (LMI.L: Quote) (LONJ.J: Quote), in which more than 40 people were killed.
