Originally built in 1950-51 as the Whitehorse-Mayo Road, and long known as Yukon Highway 2, the route was renumbered in 1978 as Highway 11, and in the mid-1980s was given its name, referring to the historic operations of silver mining in the district.

The highway is paved as far as Mayo's airport, and is gravel from there to Elsa and Keno City. A network of rural roads winds through the area, providing a back road into Keno City.
