Please help- 07 Cammander PS rear axle leak WTF

Can anyone offer a word of advice on this. I have a slow leak at the Pass side rear axle. I have pulled the hub twice and change the o-ring that seals the hub to the tube. The last fix (about three weeks ago) I used a healthy amount of ultra copper sealant around the face of the hub to the axle tube thinking the leak was coming from that flange area.
I pulled tire this morning to have it patched and noticed the friggin' hub and brake assembly is soaked again but it doesn't appear to be coming from the hub to axle tube flange. Could this be an internal leak coming out of the hub assembly? Any other ideas? Only has about 70K on it.
Thanks Chris

It's definitely leaking from the hub/wheel bearing o ring seal. The seals aren't the best if you ask me. You really need to clean the axle and wheel bearing good before you install a new one. The smallest piece of debris or dirt will cause it to leak.
