JOHANNESBURG, May 14 (Reuters) - Johannesburg-listed shares of Lonmin opened down more than five percent on Tuesday after workers embarked on a wildcat strike, shutting down all of the platinum producer's South African operations.
The stock was down 4.69 percent at 38.34 rand by 0706 GMT, after earlier hitting a low of 37.87 rand, and compared with a 0.14 percent rise in the JSE's All-Share index. Its London-listed shares were also down more than 5 percent in early trade.
