Yaw Annor added the second goal three minutes later after connecting a delicious pass from midfielder David Abagna.
The Miners led the game 2-0 at half time.
Aduana Stars lifted up their game in the second half with Coach Fabin bringing on Samuel Bio and Pius Asante Yeboah. The changes gave them the impetus to push forward and Kwadwo Amoako made a timely goal line clearance in the 57th minute to deny Aduana a goal.
David Abagna scored the third goal for AshantiGold in the 64th minute as he headed home a delicious cross from Jacob Apau.
Abagna grabbed his second goal of the game to increase the tally for the Miners as he put away a great ball from Frank Akoto.
