Many leaks start on top and make their way down. It is sometimes helpful to clean/de-grease the engine and watch carefully as the engine idles - often times the leaks are more obvious on a clean(er) canvas...especially if it's "significant" as you have indicated.

Some possibilities:
-the low oil pressure warning light sensor, located on top of the engine in between cylinders three and six.
-Valve covers.
-Rocker shafts.
-Oil return tubes.
-Engine mounted oil cooler seals, and/or the "S" hose that connects the cooler to the oil tank.
