[auscope-geosciml] GeologicEvent and GeologicFeature

Yes - I think you are going to have to define a new sub-type of GeologicFeatureRelation (like BoundaryRelationship) specifically targeting GeologicEvent.

I originally proposed a new sub-type of GeologicRelation and to avoid this that it was proposed to make GeologicEvent a type of GeologicFeature, which still requires a new relation type albeit at one level lower......

You would have to replace the geologicHistory association with a relationship defined using GeologicFeatureRelationship, yes?

This would allow semantic richness using the role properties on the relationship class.
