If it is similar to a Danforths or Ritchie compass, there is a fill hole on the underside. The gasket around the screw gets eaten away by the fluid so that is probably the source of the leak. Inspect and clean to make sure. Ritchie compasses have their own fluid which you can purchase. Danforths use mineral spirits (I believe). Not sure about Olympic?? Generally, they are fixable - do some research on internet.
